The three core areas of extended producer responsibility

Electrical Appliances

Manufacturers and importers are legally obliged under extended producer responsibility to ensure environmentally friendly disposal of their sold electrical and electronic devices. This includes both the collection, processing, and recycling of old devices.


The Battery Act (BattG) obligates manufacturers and distributors of batteries and accumulators to ensure proper disposal and reprocessing. They are required to take back batteries and promote low-pollution recycling.


The Packaging Act (VerpackG) regulates the responsibility of manufacturers and retailers for the disposal and recycling of the packaging they put into circulation. Recycling rates for packaging materials are intended to be increased through the obligation to participate in a dual return system.

EPR Compliance

The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is an environmental directive that holds the manufacturer of a product responsible and liable for its entire lifecycle. Who does it apply to, and how can it be adequately fulfilled?

EPR registration number

If you’re a manufacturer of a product falling under EPR requirements, you must apply for and publish an EPR registration number for each online shop. With us, you’ll receive your EPR registration number quickly and securely.

The guide for online traders

Online trade is booming! What is particularly important right now is that anyone who trades in products is subject to binding disposal and recycling obligations, the non-fulfilment of which can lead to considerable sanctions and warnings.

The problem is that many traders are not aware of their obligations. But only those who act in a legally secure manner are safe from unplanned costs and fines.
