What is Extended Producer Responsibility?

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy that regulates a producer’s responsibility for a product throughout product’s life cycle. A producer takes the responsibility for financing collection, recycling and end-of-life disposal of WEEE, batteries, accumulators and packaging and other EPR product categories, Under EPR regulations, a producer of products subject to EPR requirements must mitigate the environmental impacts of their products throughout the entire product life cycle.

The EPR obligations of a producer are mainly regulated by the following EU directives:

1. WEEE Directive

2. Battery Directive

3. Packaging Directive

In some other countries, the EPR regulations have been extended to more products and categories, e.g. France.

Am I a producer affected by the EPR obligations?

What is a producer?

A producer is defined as the party who first puts a product subject to EPR requirements onto the market in the respective country, e.g. Germany or France

You are considered to be a producer, if you:

1. manufacture products that are subject to EPR requirements in the relevant country, or

2. import products that are subject to EPR requirements into the relevant country, or

3. sell products that are subject to EPR requirements in the relevant country and your company is not based in that country.

For example, you sell electronical toys to the end users in Germany and France from China, you are considered to be a producer, therefore you must be EPR compliant in both Germany and France.

What should I do ?

If you are a producer of products subject to EPR regulations, you are obliged to have your EPR registration numbers. 

If you are a producer and do not have EPR registration numbers, you are required to register to obtain them.

If you are not a producer but you are a seller of products subject to EPR regulations, you need to obtain the applicable EPR numbers from your upstream supplier.

If you are not a producer and cannot obtain the applicable EPR registration numbers from your upstream supplier, you are required to register to obtain them before sales.

Please note that you are not allowed to sell before having obtained the EPR Numbers.
