FAQ / Annual reporting by producers

Must we submit the yearly follow-up information of WEEE to the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for Pirkanmaa as well as to the producer organisation?

As a member of the producer organisation you only need to report to the producer organisation. The producer organisation submits the WEEE follow-up information on behalf of its members to the authorities based on the report data received from the producer members. Based on the data gathered with the reporting, the producer organisations collect the data from the previous year for the supervising authority, Pirkanmaa ELY-Centre. Thus the member organisations of the producer organisations need not report separately to the authority.
