The Extended Producer Responsibility imposes a variety of legal responsibilities on producers. These obligations include not only the WEEE, battery, and packaging requirements adopted from European legislation. In addition to other waste streams, French law makes furniture and textile manufacturers accountable for collecting, treating, and recycling their waste products.

The National Environmental Commitment Act of 2010 states that "every natural or legal person that produces, imports, or sells furniture goods on the market is responsible for collection and waste processing at the end of the product's life cycle." This law applies the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) principle to the furniture sector.

According to article R. 541-10-1 10° of the Code de l'environnement, anybody who sells furniture on the French market is required to register.
