Powering DPP's for world's largest global brands — persistent and interoperable digital identification with GS1 Standards
External expert Stakeholder to the CIRPASS consortium, the EU consortium laying the groundwork for DPPs
Granular and flexible product data management, supporting item and batch level product data management to meet all DPP requirements
DPPs create a digital twin of a physical product. They digitally record, process, and share information along the product lifecycle to deliver increased transparency and traceability, while supporting after-sale services such as repair, resale, and recycling.
The EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles, released in March 2022, calls for DPPs to be mandatory on textiles sold in Europe by 2030. This strategy calls upon the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) to define DPP requirements. The ESPR is expected to be adopted in 2024, when specific DPP requirements will start to be written as Delegated Acts.
A data carrier, connected to a unique product identifier, shall be physically present on or with a product.
All information included in the DPP shall be based on open standards, developed with an interoperable format and shall be machine-readable, structured and searchable.
The information included in the DPP shall refer to the product model, batch or item.
