This document provides generic methods to assess the following aspects:

3. the ability of products to be upgraded

For the purposes of this document, "product" refers to "Energy-related Product (ErP)".

This document includes generic criteria and methods relevant for assessing the ability of certain parts to be removed from products for the purpose of repair, reuse or upgrade.

NOTE The ability to of a product to be remanufactured is covered in prEN 45553:2018.

The methods in this document include product-related and support-related criteria when the product is placed on the market, taking into account knowledge of parts that are likely to fail, need replacing, or have reuse potential.

The decision whether a product should be repaired, reused or upgraded, is dependent on a range of factors such as health and safety, as well as economic, legal and environmental aspects. However, the question of whether it is reasonable to repair, reuse or upgrade products is outside of the scope of this document.
