DIGITAL PRODUCT PASSPORT

REGULATIONS & REQUIREMENTS

The DPP module supports the new EU Act on Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) including the “EU Digital Product Passport”. Under the new regulation, the DPP must ensure that all actors along the value chain, including consumers, economic operators and national authorities, can access product information relevant to them, as well as include the necessary data attributes to enable the tracking of all substances of concern throughout the life cycle of the product.

DPP will also improve traceability of products along the value chain and facilitate the verification of product compliance by national authorities.

EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL BENEFITS

In each of the following areas, the Digital Product Passport introduces a level of efficiency, transparency, and accountability that can transform how companies manage their products, interact with stakeholders, and comply with regulatory standards, all while contributing positively to societal and environmental goals. 

BRANDING AND MARKETING 
This feature enriches the product’s story and appeal by providing detailed narratives, attractive images, and engaging videos. It helps in establishing a strong brand identity and emotional connection with the consumer, enhancing marketing efforts.

LOYALTY CERTIFICATES 
Allows customers to buy loyalty certificates, directly supporting the people involved in the production of the product or contributing to charitable causes. This feature builds a sense of community and goodwill and strengthens customer loyalty to the brand.

DIRECT FEEDBACK 
Creates a direct communication channel for customers to share feedback about their product experiences. This feedback is crucial for businesses to gain insights into consumer preferences and improve their products and services accordingly.

VERIFIED PRODUCT DETAILS 
A unique id and QR-code gives access to a wealth of information such as origin, ingredients, journey through the supply chain and sustainability practices. This plays a crucial role in combating counterfeit products. Consumers can verify the authenticity to ensure they receive genuine products.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Encourages eco-friendly responsible behavior by offering incentives for returning packaging materials. This not only promotes recycling but also aligns the brand with sustainability goals and the principles of a circular economy.

PROVABLE DATA
Digitally signed data from verified sources on the blockchain ensures data is provable, with creators held legally accountable. This solidifies data integrity, enables transparent traceability, and upholds the authenticity and legal liability for information entered.

TARGETED PRODUCT RECALL
Facilitates rapid identification and tracking of products in the event of a recall, minimizing risk to consumers and reputational damage. The passport’s detailed product history allows for targeted recalls, ensuring only affected products are withdrawn.

DATA SHARING
Offers access to critical data sharing across the supply chain, enabling faster, more informed decision-making. Detailed product data helps in responding quickly to market demands, inventory needs and operational changes.
