Certain types of equipment are subject to an exemption from producer responsibility, either because the equipment is subject to other legislation on producer responsibility or for other reasons. The following pages describe the two types of exemption criteria.

It is the responsibility of the producer/the importer to assess whether his products are subject to producer responsibility. In case of doubt DPA-System provides assistance.

General exemptions:

  • Motor vehicles (subject to producer responsibility for vehicles)
  • Equipment manufactured specifically for military purposes or for protection of national security.
  • Batteries and accumulators (subject to producer responsibility for batteries)
  • Using a voltage equal to or greater than 1,000 VAC or 1,500 VDC.

Category specific exemptions:  

  • Filament bulb (exemption in Category 5).
  • Large-scale stationary industrial tools (exemption in Category 6).
  • Infected and/or implantable medical devices (exemption in Category 8).

The illustration shows that basically all electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) is covered by producer responsibility; however, the legislation gives certain exemptions. These are illustrated by the pie slices in the circle below.
