As reported by Internetrecht Rostock, Amazon is currently contacting sellers who have been identified by Amazon as manufacturers and who sell to Germany and/or France about the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations. Whoever is a manufacturer is required to submit the corresponding registration numbers to Amazon in accordance with the Packaging Act or the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act and later, in accordance with the Battery Act, if applicable.
Amazon will make a corresponding link available to upload this information in the fourth quarter of 2021. Amazon provides specific information on extended producer responsibility here.
Amazon has announced that it will suspend non-compliant offers, i.e. take them off the platform, namely for packaging all offers from 1 July, 2022, and for electrical and electronic equipment all offers from 1 January 2023.
