When a producer or an importer places equipment on the market for private end-users the producer responsibility entails a requirement for provision of an annual financial guarantee for the costs for collection and reprocessing of WEEE.
The financial guarantee is used in situations where a producer or an importer ceases to exist or does not assume responsibility for management of the allocated quantities of WEEE.
The guarantee is provided by the producer or his collective scheme as a so-called guarantee on demand in a Danish financial institution or a Danish branch office.
Collective schemes may in certain cases apply for exemption from provision of financial guarantee.
Small companies not members of a collective scheme and placing equipment on the market for households can use a special kind of financial guarantee. This special financial guarantee is calculated and levied once a year by DPA-System. See more in the document “Financial guarantee” under the link on the right hand side.
