Taking care of obligations
Elker Ltd is liable for its owners' obligations

Benefits based on co-operation
As a member of a producer organisation a
company can benefit from administrative, volume and logistics synergies arising
from collective procurement and can affect the procurement of these services.
Moreover, the member company of a producer organisation need not submit
separate notices to the register maintained by the supervising authority Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for Pirkanmaa.
Joining as member in a producer organisation
A producer can join in as a member in only one of the 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 in as member on the left side linklist on this page.
