USB-C will be mandatory for phones sold in the EU ‘by autumn 2024’ - The Verge - theverge.com/2022/6/7/23156361

The legislation still needs to be approved by the EU Parliament and Council later this year, but this appears to be a formality. In a press release, the European Parliament stated clearly that the law will be in place “by autumn 2024.” By this date, all devices covered by the law and sold in the EU will have to use USB-C for wired charging.
