Registration of new producer

Producers and importers subject to producer responsibility must register in the DPA-System producer register with information on, among others, master data, products, and quantities in kilos put on the market.

Registration must be made electronically on the DPA-System website no later than two weeks before planned marketing.

Producers and importers dealing in portable batteries must also register with Skattestyrelsen (The Danish Tax Agency) through The Danish Business Authority.

Registration of producer in collective scheme

The producer or the importer may choose to have a collective scheme undertake the duty of registration. In this case the collective scheme will make the registration.

Note! Registration is statutory for batteries and accumulators covered by the producer responsibility scope. Therefore it is not legal to sell products covered by producer responsibility on the Danish market if the producer/importer is not registered with DPA-System.
