Dpp in a nutshell


A Digital Product Passport (DPP) is a structured collection of product related data with pre- defined scope and agreed data management and access rights conveyed through a unique identifier and that is accessible via electronic means through a data carrier. The intended scope of the DPP is information related to sustainability, circularity, value retention for re- use, remanufacturing, and recycling.

The DPP’s goals are: (1) enhancing sustainable production; (2) extending product lifetimes, optimising product use, and providing new business opportunities to economic actors through circular value retention and extraction; (3) supporting consumers in making sustainable choices; (4) enabling the transition to the circular economy by boosting materials and energy efficiency; and (5) supporting authorities to verify compliance.
