The mandatory display of a Reparability index for electric and electronic products is established by virtue of article 16 of the Circular Economy law. It consists in displaying a Repairability score (from 0 to 10) on the product detail page along with the parameters which made it possible to establish this score. It will enable to inform consumers about the Repairability of the products concerned.
For more background on the Repairability Index Requirements, please see: https://www.ecologie.gouv.fr/indice-reparabilite#scroll-nav__5.

2. Calculation Grid Image
The calculation grid details the 5 criteria taken into account for the calculation of the Repairability Index. The format of the grid has been standardized and can be found here: sites/default/files/Grilles%20anglaises.zip.
It might differ depending on the product categories.
Once your item has been added to our catalogue, please upload the calculation grid as an image. The recommended format for the file is JPEG (.jpg) and the URL must be correctly formed and valid (e.g. include http://). It must contain ".RIFR" in the file name (e.g. http://www.example.com/amazon_images/ B0000TEST1.RIFR.jpg); otherwise, the image will not be displayed on the detail page. This image will have to meet with the usual technical requirements detailed on the following page: Produt image requirements.
