Our Missions

EUREFAS wants to define and advocate the common interests, policies and positions of the European refurbished industry. We recognise that our industry is still young, and it is vital to shape and promote our industry to help conserve our planet’s resources.

EUREFAS’s goal is to ensure and define quality standards for the interests of end customers and contribute to a greener world. Many players in our industry believe that we need to guarantee the end customer a high level of quality, including a clear warranty period and various controls to ensure a satisfactory experience for those purchasing a refurbished device.

EUREFAS was created to engage in dialogue with European institutions and other stakeholders to advance understanding of industry-related issues, and to contribute to effective policy and legislation at European level to support the development of our industry.
