WEEE Germany: Damages payable due to failure to register under the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act

Competitors can assert far-reaching claims for information and damages due to missing ElektroG registration. Businesses are therefore well advised to avoid such violations through proper registration.

The law firm Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB (KPW) reported the following on their website on 2 June 2021: “Competitors can assert far-reaching claims for information and damages due to missing ElektroG registration. In cases of corresponding distribution prohibitions and a comparatively tight market, such claims for information can be very far-reaching since competitors can demand compensation for their own lost profit. Businesses are therefore well advised to avoid such violations through proper registration.”

Further particulars on this specific case are available on the KPW website.
