The new year has brought with it a new schedule of fees for the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroGGebV). This replaces the schedule released by EAR in 2017. Whereas the fees have only increased slightly in some areas – e.g. registering products or checking guarantees – the costs in other areas have risen appreciably due to increased expenditures by stiftung EAR for counselling and processing, e.g. confirming the appointment of an authorised representative. The new schedule of fees is available here (in German).
