On 3 January 2022, take-e-way provided comprehensive information on the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG3) and the relevant dates in 2022 and, in this context, also on the topics of B2B take-back obligations, take-back concept and information obligation vis-à-vis end-users.
As luther-lawfirm.com reports, manufacturers of B2B electrical equipment already registered had to deposit a take-back concept by 30 June 2022. Otherwise, there is a risk of the registration(s) being revoked and thus a de facto ban on placing the electrical equipment on the market. In addition, fines may be imposed if unregistered electrical appliances are placed on the market. The confiscation of undue profits may be a consequence of the violation of the take-back concept.
The EAR Foundation writes the following in its information letter dated 1 July 2022: “You can still avert this [editor’s note: revocation of your registration, which is subject to a fee] by now swiftly supplementing your withdrawal concept.”
The good news: take-e-way had already informed its customers in December 2021 and deposited the take-back concept accordingly.
If you need support, take-e-way offers you solutions for the B2B take-back obligation, take-back concept and information obligation according to Section 7a (Section 19) ElektroG3.
