The Right to Repair Initiative
Within the new EU framework, one of the initiatives that will have the highest impact for both the consumer and supplier is the Right to Repair Initiative; this initiative ensures that appliances such as washing machines, fridges, hairdryers and televisions will last up to 10 years and will be cheaper to repair. Furthermore, this initiative will be extended to other devices such as, smartphones and laptops.

- Is there risk of product recalls?
- How much of the repairs will affect warranties and product safety?
- What are the future implications within the European market?
