Obligations of Producers

The obligations stress the need of prevention in producing electrical equipment, including the prescribed labelling. There is the obligation to finance the above-mentioned activities and to keep records of the electrical equipment placed on the market and of that taken back and that collected separately.

All producers operating on the Czech market are obliged to contribute to the scheme to meet the associated costs for the household EEE placed on the market before 13 August 2005 (so called historical waste) with the sum determined according to their market shares to the date of incurring of the costs

Selling new products, the producers can show these costs separately for 8 or 10 years, as the case may be, so that it is evident that the given portion of the purchase price will be used to the above-mentioned purpose.
