Producer responsibility means that importers are responsible for the waste management related to the products they have released on the market.
: Batteries, accumulators, vehicles, electronic equipment, and a few other product groups are defined as falling under producer responsibility in the Waste Act. This means that the importer or manufacturer of the products (the producer) is responsible for the waste management related to these products, instead of the holder of the waste or the municipality. The producer responsibility for batteries applies to all batteries and accumulators, regardless of whether they have been imported as such or inside new or used equipment or vehicles.
