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 damn EU infringing on our freedoms by enabling third parties to fix things

@captainbland @neil
Anyone know if "TVs & monitors" will cover projectors?
Had a bad experience with ours breaking and everyone refusing even to look at it, now wary of buying a replacement.

@neil Can we please disassemble the UK and salvage the bits that still work to make new parts for the EU?

@neil
that's a nice step in the right direction.

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