Producers and importers ceasing business or ceasing sale of products under the duty to register must be deleted from the DPA-System register. Also, DPA-System must be notified if a registered company changes authorised representatives, changes collective schemes, merges or changes ownership. DPA-System must always been informed in writing.
Often, the collective schemes assume any contact with DPA-System on behalf of their customers – deletion from the register, however, always requires a written request to DPA-System from the producer. It is not possible to delete registration retrospectively.
When a company is deleted from the register it is no longer legal for this company to place electrical and electronic products on the Danish market.
Producers and importers can shift between schemes: from one collective scheme to another and from individual schemes to collective schemes or vice versa. In cases where a producer or an importer discontinues membership of a scheme and/or enters another scheme this producer/importer must notify DPA-System in writing.
For producers and importers selling equipment to private users a shift between different schemes has different implications for allocation of WEEE depending on the time of year of the shift.
Businesses in other EU countries not established in Denmark and therefore having an authorised representative in Denmark to assume their producer responsibility may change representatives whenever they please - also in the reporting period.
If a company ceases due to a merger different rules apply to new registration and updating in the producer register of DPA-System. The rules depend on the CVR number that the producer chooses to use when the merging company registers with the Danish Business Authority.
Producers or importers must to inform DPA-System in writing when changes in the use of a CVR number occur.
