The legislation stipulates that each importer that 'brings an electro-appliance onto the Belgian market' must also take care of the collection and processing of the discarded appliances.
As an importer of electro-appliances, you are responsible for taking back the discarded appliances at the end of their lifecycle and you must oversee the processing. What does this mean in practice? If you import appliances, you are obliged to fulfil your take-back obligation.
We can handle your take-back obligation. It’s simple: affiliating with Recupel in accordance with the category of appliances that you import is all that is required.
If you would like more information about this, please contact us at 0800 40 387 (free of charge) or via the online contact form.
If you import appliances and you do not have a Recupel affiliation agreement, then you must submit an individual waste management plan to the authorities of the three regions (se Affiliation).
