Producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), as well as of Batteries and Accumulators, must comply with the duties laid on them in legislative decree 49/2014 concerning WEEE and of decree 188/08 on batteries and accumulators.
Under the terms of Legislative Decree 49/2014 "producers" means anyone that, regardless of the sales arrangements used:
• makes and sells Electrical and Electronic Equipment bearing their own trade mark;
• resells equipment that is produced by other suppliers and badged with its own trade mark;
• is the first to import or release onto the Italian market electrical and electronic equipment as part of a business and handles their commercialisation.
Under the terms of Legislative Decree 188/08 "producers" means anyone that, regardless of the sales arrangements used, releases onto the market for the first time in a business capacity batteries and accumulators, including those that are inside equipment or vehicles.
Legislative Decrees 49/2014 and 188/2008 make it a duty on producers of EEE and of batteries and accumulators to fund the transport operations and also those for treating, recovering, and ensuring the eco-compatible disposal of WEEE, batteries, and accumulators.
The producers have a collective responsibility, each in proportion to their respective market shares.
