Final report - Study
The overall objective of this study is to explore policy options to improve reparability by analysing impacts of applying reparability requirements on 4 specific product groups. The operational objectives are the following: - Identify suitable policy options and policy scenarios to improve reparability; - Perform case studies on four suitable product groups; - Quantify the job creation, economic and resource-savings potential of the selected options and policy scenarios and its individual elements, including impact on SMEs, based on the European Commission's Impact Assessment Guidelines; -... Describe the characteristics of possible job creation potential in terms of skills requirements, private/public, entrepreneurship and self-employment, entry to labour market and global mobility; and - Describe mechanisms under which such a policy framework would develop in a scientifically sound way building on empirical studies, literature studies or economic modelling or others as best suited.
