Certain types of equipment are subject to an exemption from producer responsibility, either because the equipment is subject to other legislation on producer responsibility or for other reasons. 

It is the responsibility of the producer/the importer to assess whether his products are subject to producer responsibility. In case of doubt DPA-System provides assistance.


  • Motor vehicles (subject to producer responsibility for vehicles)
  • Batteries and accumulators (subject to producer responsibility for batteries)
  • Equipment manufactured specifically for military purposes or for protection of national security
  • Large-scale stationary industrial tools
  • Infected and/or implantable medical devices
  • Certain specific means of transportation

The illustration shows that basically all electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) is covered by producer responsibility; however, the legislation gives certain exemptions. These are illustrated by the pie slices in the circle below.
