02.02.2015 – Annual Report 2014 now available
02.12.2014 – Updating proof of guarantee - change to the calender year (ending 31st December 2015)
Producers who have to update the proof of guarantee for validity periods starting from 1st February 2015 should choose the 31st December 2015 as the end of the validity period (shortened validity periond).
The reason is that when the new version of ElektroG is effective the calender year will presumably be the accepted validity period. Also the structure of the proof of guarantee will change: According to the intended regulations of the current draft law, proof of guarantee that is submitted according to the current laws, can only be used until 31st December 2015. Proof of guarantee which have a longer validity period would therefore need to be changed for a fee.

01.09.2014 – Revision of the factors for calculating guarantee amounts and the presumed medium life expectancy
stiftung ear has checked the guarantee parameters stated in rule ear 02-003. Relying on this the medium disposal costs and the presumed return rates were partly changed. The new values are valid for the calculation of guarantee amounts for months of placing on the market as from January 2015. Additionaly the presumed medium life expectancies were adapted, which define when a guarantee expires. This change is valid for guarantee validity periods, which start on January 1st, 2015 or later. You find the new values – including those for photo-voltaic modules – in rule ear 02-003.
You find support to fill attachment 'guarantee amounts in the guarantee validity period 2014/2015' here.
01.07.2014 - New allocation of responsobilities
As from 1st of July, 2014 there is a uniform responsibility for the processing of b2c and b2b registrations. For producers of b2b equipment the first letter is no longer relevant for the allocation of responsibility but the registration number. If a producer participates in a producer-guarantee-system concerning his b2c registrations then the ear employee who processes the b2c-registrations is also responsible for the b2b registrations. For questions on the scope Mr. Müller remains responsible.
