Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy that makes the party who first places a product subject to EPR requirements in the country (also known as “Producer” for EPR) responsible for the entire life cycle of the products that they introduce on the market, from their design until the end of life (including waste collection and take-back). Under EPR regulations, the liable entities must mitigate the environmental impacts of their products throughout the entire product life cycle.
You can be considered as a ‘Producer’ if any of the below options apply to you:
if you manufacture a product subject to EPR requirements in the country, and/or
if you import a product subject to EPR requirements into the country, and/or
if you sell a product subject to EPR requirements in the country and you are not established in that country.
Full services includes official registration, authorized representative and reporting and recycling management in all categories of products, to minimise your product compliance risk.

EU/UK Authorized Representative
If your e-commerce business entity is based outside of the European Union or United Kingdom, you need an authorised representative within EU and UK to verify that your product is legally allowed to bear the CE mark (EU) or UKCA mark (UK) and display it on retailing packing.
Energy Lable for Extensive Producer Responsiblity
From 1 January 2019, suppliers (manufacturers, importers or authorised representatives) have to upload information about their products into the European product database for energy labelling (EPREL) before placing these products on the European market. Consumers will be able to search the database for energy labels and product information sheets as of March 2021 for the first rescaled product categories.
