Do I need to register in other countries?

Do I need to register in other countries?

Producer responsibility requirements for WEEE, batteries and packaging vary from country to country. You may be required to sign up directly to another country’s National Register, or to join a producer compliance scheme (PCS). 

As there remains no harmonised legal framework and obligations differ across member states, we recommend seeking advice on registration requirements across the EU.

Along with other producer-led not-for-profit PCSs in Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. REPIC is a founding member of WEEE Europe, a pan-European, non-profit organisation based in Munich, Germany. WEEE Europe works closely with producers to provide advice on obligations for WEEE and batteries in 27 EU countries plus the UK, Switzerland and Norway.

WEEE Europe coordinates fast and reliable registration with national registers or producer compliance schemes in the countries relevant to a producer and offers an IT platform for producers to centrally fulfil their obligation to report ‘placed on the market’ figures in different member states. The organisation’s participating producer compliance schemes guarantee to abide by international waste treatment standards.
