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.
take-e-way has extended the “Reporting and information obligations for manufacturers” on its website to include the item "Note on waste prevention”.

We recommend that you use the following words as an anchor text for the link on your website: “Information obligations pursuant to Section 18 (2) of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act”. If you have already placed this link on your website, you do not need to do anything further as far as the online information requirements are concerned.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the take-e-way consultants by phoning +49/40/750687-0 or sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
