ELV is short for end-of-life vehicles and is used all over the EU as a common term for scrap cars.

The rules on ELV introduce producer responsibility to the effect that producers and importers of vehicles must organise and finance take-back and management of scrap cars and report information to a producer register.

DPA-System is an organization established under the Environmental Protection Act with the purpose to administer the rules on producer responsibility in Denmark. The purpose of DPA-System is to ensure operation of the national producer register and to design and administer a simple and fair producer responsibility scheme for affected players.

Under the items in the above black bar you can read about who and what is covered by producer responsibility, about registration and reporting, as well as the different affected players.
