Description

: The repairability index consists of a score out of 10 intended to be displayed at the time of purchase to inform consumers of the categories of electrical and electronic products. This score is obtained by dividing an overall score of 100 points by 10 according to five criteria, each scored out of 20 and of equal weight, making it possible to assess the repairability of the products concerned. These criteria are as follows: documentation provided by the manufacturer, ease of disassembly of the product, availability of spare parts, relationship between the price of the most expensive spare part and the price of the original product, usage counter (optional) or other criteria specific to the category of products concerned. This Order applies to all electrical and electronic equipment subject to calculation and display of the repairability index according to the provisions of the Decree on procedures for applying the repairability index for electrical and electronic products, its criteria and calculation method. It establishes the cross-cutting procedures relating to implementation of the repairability index: note constituting the repairability index (Article 2), colours and display markings (Article 3), calculation of the index and presentation of the parameters applied to determine it (Article 4), definition of sub-criteria (Article 5), definitions used (Article 6) .
