Legislative Framework

One objective of the BRPCE to create a process for identifying and overcoming legal and administrative barriers and for boosting the circular economy in Brussels through the smart and positive adaptation of the relevant rules and models whilst keeping the same level of protection.

The circular economy also requires new legal constraints and economic incentives if it is to develop; these will encourage re-utilisation and recycling and discourage incineration unless for residual fractions. They will also discourage the design of products which have a short lifecycle where a longer one would be more appropriate.
