Making of transfer agreement

A producer can transfer its producer responsibility to a producer organisation – either to SELT Association, ICT Producer Cooperative or FLIP Association.

Producers registered in Finland

Producers registered in Finland can transfer their obligations to the mentioned producer organisations. Correct producer organisation is chosen by defining under which producer organisation's product categories most of the company's products belong to.

You can find more information about the WEEE categories each producer organisation takes care of and how to join a producer organisation on the left side link list on this page.

Selling to another EU country

If you sell products in distance selling to another EU country, you are obliged to nominate an authorised representative to that country to take care of the producer obligations in that member country.

Foreign companies

In case your company bears producer responsibility, but is no established in Finland, Elker can act as the company's authorised representative in Finland. Establishment means that the company has domicile in Finland and is registered in Finnish Business Register (Finnish VAT number) or has a Finnish branch/subsidiary with Finnish business ID registration (Finnish VAT number).
