European Union pushes USB-C standard by manufacturers, including Apple

European Union USB-C – If it manages to get a majority, manufacturers will get 24 months to implement USB-C in their devices.

The European Union’s executive body, the European Commission, is intensifying efforts to ensure that mobile phone companies adopt one USB-C charging port on their devices. The European Union first filed a single charger adoption case in 2018 and has since made efforts to get manufacturers to adopt this policy to reduce environmental waste. This effort did not detract from the desired result, although Apple has opposed the proposal.

It seems that the Commission is ready to go ahead with the proposal by adopting a law for one type of charging port. The Commission has announced plans to push forward the proposal. EU Commissioner Thierry Breton revealed that the proposal only covers wired connectivity and does not cover gadgets or chargers wireless.

The newly revised Radio Equipment Directive proposal will not be limited to mobile phones. Still, it will be extended to other devices such as cameras, game consoles, tabletsheadphones, and portable speakers. In addition, this proposal will force manufacturers to make their fast charging standards uniform and also provide customers with information about the charging standards their devices support.

Reporting from Gizmochina (24/9), this proposal still has a long way to go before it becomes law. It will be subject to a vote in the European Parliament. If it manages to get a majority vote, manufacturers will get 24 months to implement it on their devices. There is no doubt that the EU parliament will vote in favor of the proposal after, in early 2020, it voted in a related proposal that seeks to get manufacturers to adopt common chargers for all devices. – European Union USB-C
