These criteria are as follows: documentation provided by the manufacturer, ease of disassembly of the product, availability of spare parts, relationship between the price of the most expensive spare part and the price of the original product, usage counter (optional) or other criteria specific to the category of products concerned. This Order applies to front-loading household washing machines falling within the scope of Regulation (EU) 2019/2023 laying down ecodesign requirements for household washing machines and household washer-dryers.
