Producers and importers subject to producer responsibility must register in the DPA-System producer register with information on master data, product categories, and quantities in kilos put on the market.
Registration must be made electronically on the DPA-System website no later than two weeks before planned marketing.
The duty of registration entered into force in 2006. For producers and importers having put equipment subject to registration on the market the duty of registration thus applies for equipment sold from 2006 onwards.
If a producer or an importer has put equipment subject to registration on the market in the above period without having registered with DPA-System, this company is obliged to register equipment for previous years.
The producer or the importer may choose to have a collective scheme undertake the duty of registration and reporting. In this way the collective scheme will assume all registration and updating of data.
