Slovenia: The fight against free riders

As we have learned, a take-back system based there is also actively sounding out the market. The aim of this action is to ensure fairer competition and at the same time to draw more attention to the legal obligations.

Several times in recent months, we have reported that more and more European organizations (take-back systems, transnational producer networks and also authorities) have taken up the fight against free riders. Free riders are seen as producers who do not comply with the existing laws of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and do not take into account the registration and reporting obligations of electronic and electrical equipment, batteries and packaging.

This trend is also taking hold in Slovenia. As we have learned, a take-back system based there is also actively sounding out the market. The aim of this action is to ensure fairer competition and at the same time to draw more attention to the legal obligations. As communicated by our partner, it is planned to point out the existing obligations to the identified free riders in a first step and, if no concrete measures are derived from this, to report them to the authorities in a second step.

Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive support for legally compliant trade in currently 35 countries. We register your electronic devices, batteries and packaging - no matter where your company is located and no matter to which and how many countries you sell. Our constantly growing partner network is the basis of our reliability.
