The path to compatibility with Digital Product Passports

In just a few years, the European Union will start requiring products sold in the Union to be accompanied by Digital Product Passports (DPP), providing extensive information on circularity, environmental impact responsible sourcing, production and distribution, repairability, and recycling. A mouthful to say, but even more so, a gigantic task to undertake.

How extensive and complete information do you have on the CO2 footprint of your products, from "cradle to grave", for example? Are you sufficiently confident about it to pass that information on automatically with each and every product? And how do you ensure that it stays valid? That your sub suppliers don't make changes in their processes that affect the CO2 footprint? OR change the possibility for recycling?

Do you have it available in formats and according to established international standards to make it easily accessible and compatible with industry systems? And is it tagged to ensure that it is distributed to the appropriate groups of persons?

....and that's just the CO2 footprint....

The process to compatibility is huge and will take time.

So, it's imperative to start early.

Smart companies start early, like Hilding Anders

The Swedish company Hilding Anders isn't just a pioneer in the realm of sleep and beds. It has also decided to have an early start in getting ready for DPP.

While all details aren't available yet, enough is clear to start the journey, learning along the way. That is exactly what Hilding Anders intends to do.

For that purpose, Hilding Anders has reached out to us at Blue Cromos to get access to a sandbox environment of our platform for handling DPP-data. To gain experience of what is ahead and what it will take to get there. What type of data, formats, and standards will be required. What is available, what will Hilding Anders need to collect, and from where.

In addition to getting access to the sandbox of the DPP-platform, Hilding Anders will also get access to the experience we have gained from earlier proofs of concept and sandbox endeavours, as we've written about earlier.

The Blue Cromos platform for Digital Product Passports

At Blue Cromos, we've built a "DPP data assembly line" in parallel to the gradual production and assembly of physical products. A dynamic assembly line that also handles continuous verification and certification of data. Following the materialisation of products from the source of raw materials, via gradually more complicated components to finished products and beyond. As specifications or processes changes, the data get adjusted for affected items.


Do you also realise that there's no time to lose, do like Hilding Anders and reach out.
