Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment in France. What You Need to Know?

New Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) guidance is set to change how electronic manufacturers, distributors, and sellers operate in France.

To comply with French law, businesses that deal with electrical equipment such as fridges, mobile phones, and computers must now take back their waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) on a 1:1 basis.

This means that electrical sellers in France are required to pay for WEEE recycling and disposal. This can be completed via several methods:
  • At the point in which you deliver the goods.
  • Through local collections set up by the distributor
  • By putting a postal solution in place to receive the WEEE
Businesses operating within the French electrical and electronic sectors need to plan to collect and dispose of WEE in proportion to the number of goods it places into the French market.


Alike EPR across other European territories such as Germany, manufacturers, distributors, and sellers or EEE products in France must apply to be registered with the national register of EEE producers.
