I put electrical appliances on the market, do I need to join?
Yes, if you are a producer or importer and you put an electrical or electronic device on the Dutch market for the first time. From 1 March 2021, the producer responsibility is being directed by the OPEN Foundation. All producers of electrical and electronic devices must, as of that date, fulfil their legal obligations through the OPEN Foundation. This page explains when you are responsible as a producer and/or importer, which appliances are covered by the WEEE regulation and more about the legislation. If this is compulsory for you, we will welcome you at the OPEN Foundation. The waste management-fee agreement is available if you should like to read through it. You can join via the MyOPEN-button on this site.
