’Right to repair’ rules brought in for appliances in the EU

The EU has put in place rules requiring firms to make appliances longer-lasting, ensuring they will have to supply spare parts for machines for up to 10 years. The rules, effective from 2021, apply to lighting, washing machines, dishwashers and fridges. The legislation was prompted by frustration from consumers around machines that break down when they are just out of warranty.

Hats off to the EU, you managed the bare minimum. How about a just let people repair their own shit and accept liability for faulty equipment like you would a car. Learning to do repairs should be mandatory in schools at least.
