(Online) mail order - legally compliant with ECOLOGICON

You distribute products on the European market as a mail order company and are affected by product stewardship legislation (e.g. for electrical appliances, batteries, packaging or textiles)? Find out what you need to know. To avoid penalties for your business model, you should know your obligations and implement them in a legally compliant manner.

According to the European WEEE Directive, you are a distance seller if you make electrical equipment available to end users on a commercial basis using means of distance communication in a Member State of the European Union in which you are not established. Accordingly, they are required to authorize a person or company established there before making it available on the market of that Member State.

Each market is characterized by minor legal peculiarities that need to be taken into account. The deviations arise from the legal transposition of the directive into national legislation and are influenced by different prerequisites in the respective EU member states.
