Supporting Remanufacturing — the backbone of the Circular Economy.


We are aware that some companies are investigating investment in large-scale, centralised centres designed to take back used products and components for disassembly, remanufacture, and material recycling. These potential investments are being considered in part because of risks arising from ongoing disputes over international trade relationships. Our aim is to remove the impediments put in the way of these investments by regulations written for waste materials and not for used products. After presentation of the submission to the European Commission’s DG GROW on 27th January, one official described it as the most comprehensive such document the department had received!
