Other players

In addition to producers/importers and authorities a large number of other players have roles to play under the producer responsibility scheme.

Collective Schemes Collective schemes are companies offering to assume some of the duties associated with producer responsibility on behalf of the producers.


All producers selling electrical equipment must submit an auditor’s attestation in connection with their annual reporting, certifying marketed quantities.

Recycling industries:

When electrical equipment becomes WEEE it must be collected and treated in view of recycling. This task must be assumed by environmentally approved hauliers and recycling industries.

Dealers and distributors:

Dealers and distributors of electrical equipment are not necessarily subject to producer responsibility, but they may have some duties in connection with sale and take-back.


Users – private as well as professional – can handle their WEEE to ensure that the purpose of producer responsibility is attained.

WEEE-registers in the EU:

Since WEEE legislation has been implemented all over the EU sister producer responsibility registers exist in all EU Member States. These registers have established a European WEEE Registers Network – EWRN.
