1. Subject of regulation
This rule determines the procedure on reporting amounts placed on the market.
Registered producers and authorised representatives (§ 3 no. 10) are legally obligated to regularly report the amounts named in § 27 ElektroG to the Gemeinsame Stelle online via the ear-portal, or respectively via an electronic data interface (SOAP). Aim of this amount report obligation is especially to determine the producer’s and authorised representative’s (§ 3 no. 10 Elektro) take-back obligation of waste equipment, as well as to create a data basis for reporting to the German Environment Agency.
3.1 Amount reports
In principle, producers and authorised representatives (§ 3 no. 10 ElektroG) alone are responsible for the accuracy of the data. Stiftung ear can demand that reported amounts according to § 27 paragraph 1 clause 1 ElektroG are confirmed by an independent expert (§ 27 paragraph 3 clause 3 ElektroG). The storage period for such documentation is valid according to GOB, § 147 Abgabenordnung (tax code).
