Apply for membership
You join the association by filling in a membership application (ie officially called a producer responsibility transfer agreement) and submitting it to Elker’s member support: membersupport (a) elker.fi. The contract is signed by a person with the right to sign. By signing, you agree to the rules of the producer organization.
A company that becomes a member of SELT may register its subsidiaries for registration in the membership register, the information of which the company wishes to report on behalf of its subsidiaries in the same recycling fee and annual reports. Subsidiaries are reported in this SELT Affiliate form. A subsidiary may also become an independent member.
Subscription and annual fees
The association’s membership fee is 500 Euros for companies with a turnover of more than 150,000 euros, and 250 euros for companies with a turnover of less than 150,000 Euros. In addition, companies producing B2C equipment pay a recycling fee in accordance with the equipment and recycling fee list they report on a quarterly basis.
If the company only produces electrical and electronic equipment (B2B) suitable for professional use, an annual fee of EUR 300 will be charged. Recycling fees for B2B products do not go through the producer community, but the operator prizes the equipment when the equipment is returned for reuse or recycling.
