Work item: L.GDSPP
Subject/title: Requirements for a global digital sustainable product passport to achieve a circular economy
Status: Under study [Issued from previous study period]
Approval process: AAP
Type of work item: Recommendation
Version: New
Equivalent number: -
Timing: 2023 (Medium priority)
Liaison: IEC TC111, ISO TC 323, ETSI EE, CEN-CLC JTC10
Supporting members: COIT, ORANGE, HUAWEI, CISCO
Summary: This Recommendation presents global and common requirements to represent sustainability, mainly environmental-related, details about digital technology products, either models, batches, or individual ICT goods. These details are intended to be represented in digital format instead of paper-based. The details can represent products at the time of manufacturing, including relevant information for product transparency and a circular lifecycle, such as details related to the origin of materials composition, design, manufacturing, energy consumption, maintenance, repair, preparation for reuse, final recycling, and may include links to related documentation. The work may consider to include or relate to details that change over the lifespan of a product because of events including repair, upgrade, usage, sale, and final recycling. The details should exclude any personal or business-sensitive information. The goal of the recommendation is to define sustainability requirements, environmental related, common to all ICT products, that are feasible to represent under existing digital technology, such as device identifiers, data formats, linked data, and system architectures, as well as relate and complement to regional (e.g. European digital product passport) and global (e.g. ISO PCDS, IECĀ 82474-1) standards.
Comment: Work item jointly developed with ETSI TC EE to become a technically aligned deliverable.
