EAR Registration quick and easy via take-e-way

Why EAR Registration?

EAR registration is very important. EAR stands for the foundation “Elektro-Altgeräte Register”. Registration is carried out in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (this is the German implementation of the WEEE Directive) and the Batteries Act. This is the first step towards fulfilling your obligations of product responsibility under waste legislation. This is also known as EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility). The aim of the EAR registration is to obtain the relevant registration numbers. This enables you to prove to third parties that you have acted in accordance with the law.

Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act Batteries Act

Why do you have to register?

If you offer or sell electrical appliances and batteries, you need an EAR registration, unless your equipment and batteries have already been registered and reported by your supplier. This applies both to manufacturers and to traders.

All electrical appliances that require electrical energy for their functionality (e.g. toasters), change it through their function (e.g. power supply units) or conduct it are affected, i.e. also passive devices such as cables or adapters.

For batteries (and accumulators) it is not important whether they are sold separately, enclosed or built into a device. Because of the different ways of disposal, batteries must always be registered.
