Good news as EU formally adopts Ecodesign measures:
- As of 2021, all TVs, monitors, fridges, freezers, washing machines, washer-dryers, dishwashers and lighting products on the EU market will have to meet minimum repairability requirements
- Manufacturers will have to ensure easy disassembly with commonly available tools.
- Spare parts and repair information will have to be made available to professional repairers for a minimum number of years.

@neil Fantastic news!

@neil I hope I am doing wrong, but I refuse to believe this.
