In the first two weeks of March (1 – 18 March 2021), retailers must replace labels for mains operated refrigerators with direct sales function, mains operated refrigerators between 10 and 1500 litres in volume, mains operated household dishwashers, television sets, monitors, certain signage displays, washing machines and washer-dryers. This concerns both the products in shops and products offered on the Internet. Before that, only old energy labels may be shown, and afterwards only new ones. Missing labels must be requested from the relevant suppliers. If there is no new label, then the equipment affected must be sold off by 1 December 2021. Please bear in mind that the new labels must have corresponding test reports that must be placed in the EPREL database. If these are lacking, then new labelling is not possible. Preparing a test report is time-consuming, so please act promptly.
Waste prevention measures – new information obligations for manufacturers and distributors of electrical equipment
In its current information letter, the EAR foundation points out that all persons entitled to collect waste according to the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (i.e. in particular, manufacturers and distributors obliged to take back waste) must also provide information on waste prevention measures. There is substantial scope in how to fulfil this information obligation. take-e-way helps you with the implementation of the new information obligations.
Do you sell packaged products or packaging to Sweden? If so, we would like to inform you that the Swedish government passed new producer responsibility regulations in the summer of 2018, which came into force at the turn of the year. As of 1 January 2021, producers are required to register with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, join a take-back scheme for packaging and regularly report the quantities placed on the market. On the way to a successful registration we are of course happy to assist you.
