ERP Portugal ensures compliance with legal obligations under the Extended Producer’s Responsibility, in which companies must assume the environmental impacts resulting from the use of products that are put on the national market (electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators).

In the set of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) we find all the equipment that need electric current or electromagnetic to operate, as well as the equipment of their generation, transfer and measurement.

Batteries and accumulators include “any source of electrical energy obtained by direct transformation of chemical energy consisting of one or more non-rechargeable primary cells or one or more rechargeable secondary elements.” (Decree-Law No. 152-D / 2017, of December 11).

The management of more than one waste stream (WEEE and RPA) allows ERP Portugal to create synergies, streamline processes and reduce the administrative process associated to this activity.

Currently, more than 700 companies are part of the Producers universe who have trusted the fulfillment of their obligations to ERP Portugal:

Extended Producer Responsibility

What is extended producer responsibility?

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy that regulates a producer’s responsibility for a product throughout its life cycle. Regarding this policy, producers take the responsibility for financing collection, recycling, and end-of-life disposal of WEEE, batteries, accumulators, packaging, and other EPR product categories, to mitigate the environmental impacts of their products along the chain (from production to recycling stages).

Every company that first places a product subject to EPR requirements onto the market in the respective country is considered a producer.

This can happen in 3 ways, including the online channel:
