The OEM has been granted a patent in Europe that could affect remanufacturers.

The granted patent – EP 2 692 530 B1 – covers the “method of manufacturing a liquid cartridge and a liquid cartridge for recycling”. The document covers the steps between the first process and the end of construction, including opening valves, cleaning the reservoir and removing the stopper and cap, and this aspect could affect compatible manufacturers.

The recycling process aspect in turn features a small chart that starts with the process, following on to “ready ink cartridge for recycling” and then a step asking “reach service life?” After this, depending on whether the cartridge had reached its end-of-life as defined by Brother or not, it would proceed into one of two processes. This could affect remanufacturers as it covers steps within the process after the cartridge has been used and determining if it should be recycled or not.
