We believe products should last longer, and therefore when broken, they should be repaired. This requires products to be designed for repair as well as support for repairers of all kinds.
The new repairability requirements adopted on October 1st 2019 by the EU Commission represents a turning point in the way we produce and use our products.

We are asking for the right to repair.
