Producer responsibility in WEEE and batteries

The Producer of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) as well as the Producer of portable batteries and accumulators has a legal obligation to organize the collection, waste management and recycling of the products it places on the market. The national authority for producer responsibility in Finland is Danish Producer Responsibility Agency (DPA), who supervises the compliance.

The producer has to be registered as EEE and/or Battery Producer in DPA Producer register. The registered producers and producer organisations accepted to the register have to report the amounts placed on, collected and recycled from Danish market to the DPA. The producer responsibility includes organising separate collection, storage and logistics to recycling treatment plants.

Producer organisations organise the fulfillment of producer responsibilities in a cost effective manner.
