After the release of experts’ recommendations (Taxo 4 report) for Technical Screening Criteria in Circular Economy and Pollution reduction, in June 2023 the EC adopted high-level criteria to define circular economy practices in textiles, such as: services for repair, preparation for re-use and second hand selling.
