Our consulting and service offers for you

EPR audits

You have been active on the market in Germany with your (battery-powered and) packaged electrical and electronic equipment for several years, have diligently reported your quantities placed on the market since day one, have concluded various disposal contracts and have not been "actively" concerned with the area of EPR since then?

If so, we recommend that you conduct an EPR audit not only to determine the obligations that now apply, but also to put previous processes and concluded contracts to the test.

In addition to ensuring the existing legal requirements for offering/marketing your products, we would like to support you in our EPR audits in tackling the issue of EPR in a resource-efficient manner - and thus in a cost-, personnel- and time-saving manner.

  • Importers and exporters

Legal background

The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act, the Battery Act and the Packaging Act (in short: ElektroG, BattG & VerpackG) regulate, among other things, the offering/marketing, the taking back and the environmentally sound disposal of e-waste, waste batteries and packaging. The primarily goals are avoiding waste as well as encouraging reuse and environmentally sound recycling. In addition, the use of pollutants is to be reduced. The stakeholders of the ElektroG, BattG and VerpackG (including manufacturers, distributors, citizens, public waste management authorities, systems, waste management companies, etc.) have to fulfil a large number of obligations.
