I sell electrical appliances in the market. Do I need to register?
Are you the first to introduce electronic or electrical appliances to the Dutch market? If so, as an importer or producer, you have a legal responsibility as defined in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE). Starting from March 1, 2021, Stichting OPEN is responsible for ensuring compliance with producer responsibilities. As of that date, all producers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment must meet their legal obligations through Stichting OPEN.
