Producer responsibility in Åland

The producer responsibility in Åland can be managed as a whole through the Elker's producer organisations. As producer organisations SELT Association, ICT Producer Cooperative, and FLIP Association are registered in Åland, their member companies need not separately apply for registration in the producer register of Åland's supervising authority.

Elker Ltd requests all members of the producer organisations that supply products to Åland's market to notify this to Elker Ltd at .

The producer responsibility for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment started in Åland on 1 January 2007 and since then, five reception points of WEEE have been opened there.
