Dear take-e-way customers, dear VERE e.V. members,

As requested by lots of VERE members at the conference “Product Responsibility – a solvable Challenge?" on November 17th, 2011 in Berlin, the VERE Association is offering another service. From now on you have the option to take actions against market participants that are not registered according to the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG), the Packaging Ordinance (VerpackV) or the Battery Act (BattG) contrary to their obligations.

To do so, we have concluded a framework agreement with the Verein für lauteren Wettbewerb e.V. (VflW) (= Association for fair competition) in Hamburg, in order that you may proceed against such free riders free of charge. From now on, the contract allows you to enforce declarations of discontinuance against free riders by means of warnings of the Association for fair competition if it is possible to actually prove the unfair competition in a form that it can be used in court.

As concerned member you can contact us or directly the Association for fair competition in Hamburg by phone number +49 / 40 / 369 815 – 0 with reference to VERE. The Association for fair competition is classified as serious and has capacity to bring proceedings at all courts in Germany. In this way, it is possible to exclude dubious warnings.

We will be glad to answer your questions by phone under +49 / 40 / 21 90 10 - 64. Looking forward to being of service to you, we remain with
