Digital product passports: enhancing transparency & consumer information

Audizioni IMCO

On 16 May 2022, IMCO held a public hearing on "Digital product passports: enhancing transparency and consumer information in the internal market".

The aim of the hearing is to look into ways in which digitalisation, via the tool of product passports, can improve transparency and the availability of information on the characteristics of products sold in the EU, in particular for consumers and help transition towards a more resource-efficient single market. Digital product passports could provide information on a product's compliance with EU rules, composition, origin of components, as well as repair and dismantling possibilities.
