What defines an Electronic and Electrical Equipment “EEE” producer and what steps should they take to become compliant?
Attention South African Electronic Equipment Producers:
It is important to note that certain Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations apply to you.
To avoid penalties, you need to be registered under an approved EPR Scheme or PRO.
Wondering about compliance? Your options are clear: create your own EPR scheme, or join an existing one, such as ours.
The goal of an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme is to distribute the responsibility of waste management from local governments and municipalities to include the producers who create the products.
Producers who need to be compliant are individuals or companies in South Africa that make, import, or sell electronic and electrical goods or “EEE”. They have important responsibilities under the EPR Regulations to ensure their effective execution and adherence and can achieve this through working closely with the E-waste Recycling Authority (ERA).
In doing so, ERA Member Producers positively contribute to protecting the environment and managing resources sustainably.
