New information requirements for ElektroG manufacturers

Manufacturers are subject to new additional information obligations to private households.

From now on, information must also be provided on the fulfillment of the recycling quote and the separate collection quote

In addition, manufacturers as well as distributors and public waste management authorities must also provide information on waste prevention measures.

For the question on "How" to inform there is much scope without any form requirement provided. A reference to the annual publication of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety is sufficient.

The goal is clear: to meet the quantitative targets of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act. Our tip: Publish the information requirements where as many private households as possible can take note of them, such as on your own website.
