How we can help Textiles’ Producers in the Netherlands

Watch out: obligation started July 1st and the registration should be concluded by August 12th, 2023

From July 1st, 2023, the responsibility for managing the waste phase of clothing and household textiles falls upon importers or producers.

This entails producers contribution to an appropriate separate collection system (Producer Responsibility Organisation = PRO) and the achievement of targets for reusing and recycling textiles of high quality.

ERP Netherlands can be the solution for all the responsibilities that Producers need to be compliant, like shown below.

EPR

Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO)

Producers or importers within the definition of the EPR Textile Decree are obliged to ensure that consumers can drop off their textile products at a collection point free of charge at anytime and anywhere in the Netherlands.

Authorized Representative (AR)

It’s mandatory for foreign online retailers, who are not based in the Netherlands, to announce an Authorized Representative from the Netherlands who registers the corresponding products and quantities on their behalf.

Reporting

Furthermore, you have to prove what happens to the textile waste or that it is properly collected and recycled.

In addition, you have to report annually on the amount (weight) of textiles that are imported into the Dutch market and whether and how the collection, recycling and reuse targets have been met.

Costs

At this point, we are the only solution provider on the market, who does not charge any direct or indirect set-up fees in 2023.

Why? Because in this preliminary stage we just need you to get registered. Currently, none of the PRO´s in the market have published their fees. Our initial agreement is flexible and offers you the option to make changes to the organization if needed.

In 2024, when joining our compliance scheme, we’ll charge for reporting services only according to our agreement. 2025 will mark the first year of textile EPR compliance fees.
