EU policies affect the products on the EU market in many different ways. Citizens buy, use and discard products. Business and industries are involved in all the phases of a product’s life cycle: design, manufacturing, import/export, consumption and finally recycling or waste handling.
The EU has now opened a public consultation help identify in how far the current EU product policy framework supports a circular economy and the potential for increasing this contribution. Input is needed from the general public, businesses and local authorities as well as other stakeholders.
Feedback can be shared until 24 January 2019 by responding to an online questionnaire.
