Introduction

In order to facilitate a shift to a more sustainable economy, Circular Economy (CE) has been proposed as one of the

main ways forward. In this context, CE combined with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) could

enable decoupling of economic growth and environmental impact, see ETSI TR 103 476 [i.1] and Recommendation

ITU-T L.1022 [i.6]. In 2015, the European Commission issued Mandate 543 (M/543 [i.12]) Standardization Request

with regard to ecodesign requirements on material efficiency aspects for energy-related products, see ETSI

TR 103 476 [i.1] requesting European standardization organizations to develop standards. ETSI TC-EE accepted this

mandate for ICT network infrastructure goods, and CEN-CENELEC delivered a series of standards EN 45552 [1] to

EN 45559 [8] to cover the products within their scope. The present document is intended to provide input for

standardization related to Mandate M/543 [i.12]. The present document aims to show in which ways the finished

material efficiency standards EN 45552 [1] to EN 45559 [8] may or may not be directly applicable to ICT network

infrastructure goods. The present document is intended to provide an aid for further standardization, taking into account

the specificities of ICT network infrastructure goods which include complex products designed for long operating

lifetime, high availability and professional operation and maintenance processes in a business-to-business environment.

1 Scope

The present document defines an assessment of the direct applicability of the general material efficiency standards to

ICT network infrastructure goods in the context of circular economy. The existing generic standards address durability;

ability to remanufacture; repair, reuse, and upgrade; recyclability and recoverability; assessment of recycled content and

reused components; critical raw material content and information provision. The present document highlights where

further work on metrics/KPI and measurement methodologies may be needed for ICT network infrastructure goods

beyond each of the general standards. Specific product standards will take precedence over the present document. The

present document is a product family standard and will not define specific product requirements.

5 Draft ETSI EN 303 808 V1.0.0 (2022-10)
Introduction

In order to facilitate a shift to a more sustainable economy, Circular Economy (CE) has been proposed as one of the

main ways forward. In this context, CE combined with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) could

enable decoupling of economic growth and environmental impact, see ETSI TR 103 476 [i.1] and Recommendation

ITU-T L.1022 [i.6]. In 2015, the European Commission issued Mandate 543 (M/543 [i.12]) Standardization Request

with regard to ecodesign requirements on material efficiency aspects for energy-related products, see ETSI

TR 103 476 [i.1] requesting European standardization organizations to develop standards. ETSI TC-EE accepted this

mandate for ICT network infrastructure goods, and CEN-CENELEC delivered a series of standards EN 45552 [1] to

EN 45559 [8] to cover the products within their scope. The present document is intended to provide input for

standardization related to Mandate M/543 [i.12]. The present document aims to show in which ways the finished

material efficiency standards EN 45552 [1] to EN 45559 [8] may or may not be directly applicable to ICT network

infrastructure goods. The present document is intended to provide an aid for further standardization, taking into account

the specificities of ICT network infrastructure goods which include complex products designed for long operating

lifetime, high availability and professional operation and maintenance processes in a business-to-business environment.

ETSI

6 Draft ETSI EN 303 808 V1.0.0 (2022-10)
1 Scope

The present document defines an assessment of the direct applicability of the general material efficiency standards to

ICT network infrastructure goods in the context of circular economy. The existing generic standards address durability;

ability to remanufacture; repair, reuse, and upgrade; recyclability and recoverability; assessment of recycled content and

reused components; critical raw material content and information provision. The present document highlights where

further work on metrics/KPI and measurement methodologies may be needed for ICT network infrastructure goods

beyond each of the general standards. Specific product standards will take precedence over the present document. The

present document is a product family standard and will not define specific product requirements.
