102 participants in the seminars organized by ECOTIC: "Reports of EEE and BA producers"
ECOTIC is the first organization of manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in Romania, founded in 2006, and is the only organization that has reached and exceeded the collection threshold required by law for 2016, of at least 40%, thus respecting the mission to correctly and efficiently represent its affiliated producers. The results speak for themselves: in 2015, the producers represented by ECOTIC put on the market over 43000 tons of EEE, the collection rate being 43%, and the recycling rate being 76% for WEEE and 70% for DBA.
ECOTIC permanently maintains a very close collaboration relationship with its manufacturers, offering consulting services of real use. In this context, between May and July 2016, ECOTIC organized 5 seminars dedicated to producers, especially to the persons involved in the transmission of EEE and BA reports to ECOTIC. The seminars provided an opportunity to provide clear information on the legislation in the field, the reporting mechanism and the area of application.
The objectives of the seminars, which were attended by 102 people, were:
- Clarifications of situations related to reporting: what is reported, what is / is not EEE, determination of category, weight, classification according to the Green Stamp list, reporting platform
- Knowledge of how to work with ECOTIC and ECOTIC BAT
- Increasing the abilities to respond to the requests of the control bodies (WEEE and DBA legislation)
ECOTIC currently has over 773 manufacturers and importers affiliated in the WEEE and DBA fields, to whom we offer prompt and specialized consulting. ECOTIC ensures, through all the actions undertaken, that the annual targets for collection, reuse, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and waste batteries and accumulators (DBA) are met.
