EPR Furniture France

In France, producers are subject to a number of legal obligations under the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). These include not only the WEEE, battery and packaging directives adopted from European law. Among other waste streams, the French legislation also holds producers of furniture and textiles responsible for the collection, treatment and recycling of their waste products.

2010 law on National Environmental Commitment stipulates that “any natural or legal person who manufactures, imports or places furniture items onto the market shall be responsible for collecting and waste processing from said products at the end of their life cycle”. This provision sets out the principle of “Extended Producer Responsibility” (EPR) applied to the furniture industry.

According to article R. 541-10-1 10° of the Code de l’environnement, there is a general obligation to register if you place furniture on the French market. 

Do I need to Register?

If you manufacture, sell or import furniture products into the French market, then you must comply with the French Furniture EPR. Moreover, if you are an Amazon seller, as of 1st of January 2022 it is also an Amazon Seller Central requirement for all vendors selling goods that fall under French EPR to register with and EPR Service Provider. 

 

In order to sell in compliance with the French law, producers of furniture or textiles must fulfil their legal obligations. These include, among other things, registration with and quantity reporting to the competent authorities. You will then also receive your unique identification number (UIN) issued by the French authorities. The UIN proves that you have registered as producer. Furthermore France requires that you make a yearly recycling declaration.
