Pelikan registered under German WEEE

Pelikan registered under German WEEE

July 20, 2016

blog_pelikan_770px_8redenenThe remanufacturer has received registration notification as a manufacturer under the Elektrogesetz, the “German implementation” of the WEEE Directive.

The company announced that the registration notification came as part of the Elektrogesetz’ implementation in Germany, to “regulate the marketing, the redemption and the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment”, and Pelikan is registered as a manufacturer under the legislation. The law was adopted in October 2015 in Germany, with companies needing to register “before they bring electrical appliances into circulation in Germany”.

This includes manufacturers and importers, who needed to register with the joint manufacturing agency, EAR, and the registration also consisted of other obligations”, including “the provision of a safe insolvency guarantee” and “setting a withdrawal solution for electrical appliances” alongside “various administrative requirements and the labelling of products”.

Erik Andriessen, Marketing Director for Pelikan Hardcopy, commented: “As a leading manufacturer in the alternative printer supplies market, we have received the registration for the new electric law. With WEEE Reg. DE 68044135, we meet legal requirements in Germany. Protecting the environment is also the declared aim of Pelikan Hardcopy. In this respect, it remains to be seen how the introduction of the act will affect the hardcopy market.”

The company added that “the law goes in the right direction”, because in all EU member states, the proper recycling of old products and its financing” by manufacturers and distributors “is regulated, and the environment is protected”. In Germany, waste recycling centres have a “transfer point”, where products are often “not recycled, but gathered”, and Pelikan pointed out that when it comes to cartridge empties, it “already collects various brands in [our] own recycling centre”.

The remanufacturer also, “through the careful treatment and examination of collectible material”, ensures the “impeccable quality of remanufactured products and the proper disposal of unusable parts safely”. Earlier this week, the remanufacturer confirmed that it had achieved recertification of over 250 toner cartridges under the Nordic Swan ecolabel.
