The proposal for Ecodesign Requirements for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) sets a framework to improve the environmental sustainability of products and their circularity; textiles are a priority. Worldwide companies selling in the EU market will have to comply with Ecodesign requirements for performance and for information, via a newly introduced Digital Product Passport.
Products will have to comply with performance and information requirements set in a Delegated Act after the main ESPR law is approved. First delegated acts are foreseen in 2024. Standards for DPP are foreseen to be finalised 31 December 2025 with transition period for industry to adapt until 2027.
