Transnational Stakeholder Policy Statement of the CERREC project
download PDF | EN
The CERREC project fosters the implementation of repair- and re-use centres and networks according to WFD 2008/98/EC where “preparing for re-use” is introduced and measures (implementation of re-use networks) are recommended.  The permanent structured and moderated transnational working process within the project’s Expert Advisory Board focuses on the exchange of strategy and policy approaches, project output evaluation and detecting transnational synergy potentials.
The aim of this transnational participation process is to reach a transnational CE stakeholder consensus on how re-use should be further developed, implemented and fostered in CE national practices. This consensus is retained in this Transnational Policy Statement document, that is also an orientation for further re-use policy continuation after the project.

If you agree with the Transnational Policy Statement, you can support this document and sign online our initiative here.


The brochure of the project present not only project activities, but also re-use topic in detail. You can find there more information about re-use in practice, legal backround or presentation of some re-use good practice examples. Every national version of the brochure brings also basic introduction of re-use in all participating countries.
