French EPR Amazon processing
At present, the EPR compliance of Amazon, Wish, eBay, and AliExpress is in effect. Policies tend to be the same, i.e. eligible sellers must register for EPR in order to sell products, especially French/German sites. What is frustrating is that Baidu has absolutely no relevant information to check, leaving sellers and friends at a loss. What else is going on with Amazon? The peak season is coming, can you still sell with peace of mind? Don't panic, follow the editor to slowly understand the EU ERP.
1. What is EPR?
The full name of EPR is Extended Producer ' s Responsibilit, which is the abbreviation of an EU policy called Extended Producer Responsibility System.
2. Does Amazon need to do EPR registration?
Amazon has made it clear that as of January 1, 2022, if you are selling in France and/or Germany, Amazon will be obliged to confirm that you are eligible for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in the country where you are selling . Therefore, Amazon will collect and verify your EPR registration number.
Amazon will share the link for uploading the EPR registration number in Q4 2021. In order to avoid the platform to settle accounts in the autumn after the peak season, in this eventful autumn, it is recommended that sellers and friends avoid fluke mentality and prepare in advance.
3. Is it necessary to register the French EPR?
If you are still waiting to see whether you need to apply for the French EPR, you can know from this email from Amazon that Amazon is serious about EPR compliance, and the implementation is very strong! Sellers in need, please contact Shenmahui's partners as soon as possible to register the French EPR registration number and upload it to the Amazon backstage in time.
4. Can I not register EPR?
Amazon's email clearly pointed out that starting from 2022, it is necessary to confirm whether the products sold by sellers to Germany or France meet the EPR requirements of the country/region, and to collect and verify the seller's EPR registration number. But Amazon will share the link for uploading the EPR registration number in the fourth quarter of this year.
5. If you cannot prove to Amazon that you meet the requirements of the EPR, Amazon will take the following measures:
1. Amazon will be obliged to suspend your non-compliant products listed under the EPR product category.
2. The French and German governments find that the seller's goods do not meet the EPR requirements of the country, or will face the penalty of goods detention + fine.
Finally, a reminder to sellers who sell in peak seasons , there are less than 2 months until 2022, and the French EPR registration cycle will take 2-4 weeks. The editor reminds sellers that they need to consider the registration cycle, prepare in advance, and be careful to settle accounts after the peak season and autumn!
