Registering as a producer

Not all countries have compliance schemes like B2B Compliance and you may be required to register directly, whilst if you place B2C EEE onto their market, you may be able to register with a compliance scheme.

There are also differing requirements for registering – some countries will ask for evidence up front to prove why your product is a B2B product as opposed to a B2C product. Some may also ask that you purchase insurance in case of liquidation, to ensure that your financial obligation is still met for your products that you’ve already placed on the market.

Online Selling

If your company utilises sales platforms such as Amazon or eBay, you may find that these companies exclude producer responsibility in their contract terms and conditions. The seller therefore could remain obligated for recycling of products placed on foreign markets, irrespective of selling through a third-party platform.

Next steps

Our quick assessment questionnaire will enable our team to provide you with a fast overview of your likely obligations, and the steps you will be required to take to ensure you are compliant in every region where you are placing products on the market.
