When buying a new mobile, many users in Europe consult how easy it will be to repair said phone in a future. In addition, Europe has long sought to make it easier to repair a telephone. Europe is now announcing an important change in the hand of Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón. This is new labeling for electronic devices, such as cell phones, which will show a repairability index.
This repairability index indicate how easy or difficult it will be to repair this mobile or electronic device. This will help any consumer when purchasing this product, know ing whether such a repair in the future will be easy and whether it is worth buying this product.

This new repairability index will accompany products, such as mobile phones, in its packaging. We can therefore read on its box whether this phone is easy to repair or not. It thus seeks to help consumers make a better decision at the time of purchase. It also aims to reduce the ecological footprint by encouraging the repair of these devices in the face of obsolescence.
Europe follows in France’s footsteps, which already introduced such an index last year. The method to be followed in our country has not yet been mentioned, but it may be similar to that of the French country, where a system is used that scores products from 1 to 10, depending on the ease of repair.
In addition, in France, it is mandatory to show said repairability index both for the physical product, in its box or packaging, and on its website where said product is promoted or displayed. Europe you have not yet specified which products will be those who must display this index, although mobile phones are also expected to be among these products.
A significant change on the part of the government, which seeks to way to encourage the repair of products
