In-use product stock

Redefining value, The manufacturing revolution, Remanufacturing, refurbishment, repair and direct reuse in the circular economy, published by the United Nations Environment Programme in 2018, suggests in-use product stock: ‘Refers to products in ‘active use’, including those being repaired for return to the original user. Different from traditionalstock’ terminology, In-Use Product Stock excludes end-of-use (EOU) products that have been removed from the marketplace to be used as input to direct reuse, refurbishment, comprehensive refurbishment, or remanufacturing. For purposes of clarity, In-Use Product Stock also excludes end-of-life (EOL) products that have entered recycling or disposal streams.’
