Why you should act now
Electrical devices, batteries and packaging have one important thing in common:
The legal obligation to register

Regardless of whether manufacturers, importers, wholesalers and retailers, online and mail order companies or distributors, everyone can be affected by this registration obligation.
Failure to comply with statutory registration requirements can result in severe fines and even a ban on sales.
Therefore, you should act quickly here and ensure appropriate legal certainty.

To whom do the regulations apply?
WEEE

Every foreign and domestic natural or legal person who brings or sells electrical appliances in Germany is obliged:
Manufacturers, importers, wholesalers and retailers, online and mail order companies, distributors.
Attention: The obligation to register also applies to so-called passive electrical devices (e.g. assembled cables such as USB cables, audio cables, charging cables).

Batteries

Anyone who sells batteries or devices with built-in or enclosed batteries for the first time in Germany for the purpose of sales, consumption or use.
If batteries are not registered by the manufacturer, the obligation for registration will be transferred to the distributor. This also applies to the mail order business.

Packaging

The German law VerpackG applies to everyone who places packaging filled with goods (including filling material) on the market. Online retailers are also affected. The principle of extended product responsibility applies. Thus, everyone who brings filled packaging into circulation is responsible for taking it back and recycling it.
