(MULTI) – IATE Term of the Week: built-in obsolescence | TermCoord


Have you ever decided to replace a recently purchased broken good instead of trying to repair it? If you have, it might have been because you found it too difficult or costly to repair and you succumbed to buying a new one. The Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee of the European Parliament is aware of this situation and on Tuesday it issued a set of recommendations to encourage repairs and fight built-in obsolescence, our IATE Term of the Week.
