Other players

In addition to producers/importers and authorities a large number of other players have roles to play under the producer responsibility scheme.

Collective Schemes Producers and importers may choose to transfer some of the tasks under the producer responsibility to a so-called collective scheme or they may assume duties individually (individual compliers). See collective schemes in Denmark on next page.


Producers selling equipment to private users must submit an auditor’s attestation in connection with their annual reporting, certifying marketed quantities.

Recycling industries:

When electrical equipment becomes WEEE it must be collected and treated in view of recycling. This task must be assumed by environmentally approved hauliers and recycling industries.

Dealers and distributors:

Dealers and distributors of electrical equipment are not necessarily subject to producer responsibility, but they may have some duties in connection with sale and take-back.


Users – private as well as professional – can use their purchasing power and their management of WEEE to ensure that the purpose of producer responsibility is attained.

WEEE-registers in the EU:

Since WEEE legislation has been implemented all over the EU sister producer responsibility registers exist in all EU Member States. These registers have established a European WEEE Registers Network – EWRN.
