Reactivate your EEE listings on Amazon.de

Announcement reposted from Amazon:

As of July 1, 2023, all listings that do not meet Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) requirements for waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) on Amazon.de have been deactivated. If your listings are impacted, follow these tips to reinstate them:

Become compliant in Germany

  • If you are a producer with a branch in Germany, you have to register with stiftung ear for every brand and type of equipment combination you are selling. In addition, you have to set up a collection system for your WEEE.
  • If you are a producer without a branch in Germany, you have to appoint an authorized representative from stiftung ear’s list of admitted authorized representatives (available in German and English only).
  • If you are a producer and not yet compliant , you can sign up for one of our solutions: EPR Services on Amazon or the EPR Service provider network
  • If you are not a producer, you have to ask your upstream supplier for the WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. for all the brand and type of equipment combinations you are selling.

Prove your compliance to Amazon

  • Register your brands (go to EPR requirements: WEEE in Germany for more information) and submit your WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. for all your brand and type of equipment combinations on the Seller Central Compliance Portal. It is important that you only do this after the registration numbers become visible on the stiftung ear portal.
  • If you are not a producer, you must check the box stating that you are not a producer when submitting the relevant WEEE-Reg.-Nrs. on the Compliance Portal.
