When are guarantee amounts released?

Purely the termination of registrations does not lead to a ‘Release of guarantees’. Once your proof of guarantee has been recognised by stiftung ear it must remain until the presumed average life cycle (see rule ‘Data on determination of the guarantee amount’) of the electrical and electronic equipment placed on the market in the respective year expires. Only after that point in time the guarantee amounts are available for example to be used for other years.
