AUDITOR’S ATTESTATION OR MANAGEMENT’S STATEMENT

For producers placing electrical or electronic products on the market in Denmark it is a requirement that the quantities placed on the market and reported are authenticated no later than 31 May by an approved auditor or the company’s management.

Only producers of a certain size are subject to the requirement for submission of an auditor's attestation. Companies are exempt from the requirement for auditor's attestation and must instead submit a management’s statement if they comply with the following criteria:

1. The company has an annual turnover on the Danish market not exceeding DKK 1 million in electrical equipment subject to producer responsibility.
OR

2. If during the previous two years the company has not exceeded 2 of the following criteria:

  • A balance sheet total not exceeding DKK 4 million.
  • A net turnover not exceeding DKK 8 million.
  • An average number of full-time staff during the financial year not exceeding 12.

Management’s statement

The management must confirm the accuracy of the reported quantities of electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market no later than 31 May. The management’s statement is signed in the producer register found on the DPA-System website and also submitted to info@dpa-system.dk. It is important that the management of the company authenticates the management’s statement.

Auditor’s attestation

The auditor's attestation must be prepared by an approved auditor. It should be the same auditor as the one  the accounts of the company that submits the auditor's attestation.

Deadline for auditor’s attestation is 31 May unless the company operates with an accounting year other than the calendar year. In this case a management’s statement must be submitted no later than 31 May confirming temporarily the reported quantities and stating when the auditor's attestation will be completed. Deadline for the auditor’s attestation is no later than five months after the end of the accounting year.

The auditor's attestation is completed in the producer register on www.dpa-system.dk. The producer or his authorised representative sends an invitation from the register to the auditor who will then receive access information for completion of the auditor's attestation. The auditor's attestation is signed and submitted to info@dpa-system.dk.
