A company selling electrical and electronic equipment to another country must take care of the producer responsibilities in the country where the sales are made. A company selling directly to an end user to another EU country must appoint an authorized representative in the country of destination of the sale, who must be responsible for producer responsibility in accordance with the laws and regulations of that country. Elker can act as an authorized representative for a foreign company that sells electrical and electronic equipment directly to the end user to Finland. As Elker’s international corporate customer, you can take care of producer responsibility for electrical and electronic equipment and batteries in 26 other European countries in addition to Finland.
