As take-e-way reported, according to the new legal provisions, all non-Austrian companies (both EU and non-EU based) selling directly to private end-users have to appoint an authorised representative for their packaging put on the market as of 1st January 2023. We have subsequently received numerous enquiries from our customers. Therefore, we would like to provide you with additional information today.
As of 1st January 2023, amendments to the Austrian Waste Management Act and the Packaging Ordinance will come into force. From then on, it will no longer be possible for foreign companies to take over the responsibility for their Austrian customers (downstream distribution stages) as before.
Both companies based in the EU that continue taking over the responsibility for their customers in the B2B sector and foreign distance sellers in the B2C sector (e.g. sales to consumers via a web shop) must appoint an authorised representativebased in Austria from 1st January 2023. This obligation to appoint an authorised representative also applies to single-use plastic products.
In order to inform you about what these changes mean in practice and how to appoint an authorised representative in Austria, our partner, the Austrian Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA), offers you two free webinars in German and English.
During the webinars, take-e-way will also present a non-binding offer with which you can appoint your authorised representative comfortably and cost-effectively via take-e-way respectively our sister company get-e-right.
