4 Method for providing information on ME
4.1 General
When planning the delivery of information on ME topics, added clarity and consistency can be gained by breaking down that information, namely:
• The specific ME topic and the related content;
• The target audiences that are likely to receive the information and the corresponding data sensitivity levels;
• The means of communication and media best suited to deliver the information.
This concept is depicted in Figure 1. The annexes provide additional or complementary information, as follows:
• Annex A provides an example of a ME communication matrix for a specific product;
• Annex B provides considerations relating to the use of asset tracking technologies for communication purposes, for example by providing a means of linking from a label on a product to online product information (e.g. RFID);
• Annex C provides an example of how ME information could be reported by product publications
4.2 ME topics and content
4.2.1 ME topics
ME topics as proposed by standardization request M/543 [1] have been consolidated by the CEN-CENELEC EN standards in the numerical range of 45552 — 45558.
With respect to the delivery of information, product publications shall determine which of the different ME topics are relevant or applicable to that product and the metrics associated to it, as below.
• Durability: EN 45552, General method for the assessment of the durability of energy-related products [4];
• Ability to remanufacture: EN 45553, General method for the assessment of the ability to remanufacture energy-related products [5];
• Ability to repair, reuse and upgrade: EN 45554, General methods for the assessment of the ability to repair, reuse and upgrade energy-related products [6]:
• Recyclability and recoverability: EN 45555, General methods for assessing the recyclability and recoverability of energy-related products [7);
• Proportion of reused components: EN 45556, General method for assessing the proportion of reused components in energy-related products 181:
• Proportion of recycled content: EN 45557, General method for assessing the proportion of recycled content in energy-related products [9J:
• Use of critical raw materials: EN 45558, General method to declare the use of critical raw materials in energy-related products (10).
4.2.2 Topic-related content
The assessment of ME topics such as the ones listed in 4.2.1 is likely to generate different types of Information to be communicated to one of more target audiences, either on a voluntary basis or to fulfil legislation. These will be referred to as “topic-related content in this document.
Topic-related content can have a qualitative nature (like repair information, test reports, etc.) or quantitative (%. mass, hours, etc.).
In some cases, the topic-related content can also be used as an input to assess a ME topic. For example, in order to assess the reparability of a product as described in EN 45554 L61, the availability of specific information by some target audiences, such as information on the availability of spare parts or disassembly instructions, may be needed.
EXAMPLE Examples of topic-related content are:
• Ufetime of a product or product part in appropriate unit of time, cycles, or distance;
• Repair instructions:
• Information on repair centres:
• Disassembly instructions;
• Information on the transfer and deletion of personal data from a product;
• Information on upgrade potential of certain product parts;
• Upgrade instructions;
• Time for disassembly (in appropriate time unit);
• Disassembly sequence (qualitative assessment);
• AvaiIabity of spare parts:
• Information on the presence of critical or hazardous materials (in support of e.g. recycling);
• Content of reused components in mass% or total number%;BS EN 45559 pdf download.
