WEEE France

In 2014, the French Environmental Code R.543-172 to R.543-206 translated the EU WEEE Directive into national law, clarifying the recycling requirements for electronic and electrical products sold in France.
In fact, in France in 1975 defined the Responsabilite elargie des producteurs (REP), requiring producers to be responsible for the recycling of waste produced by their products.
The French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) is the head of waste recycling, which has established the SYDEREP (SYsteme DEclaratif des filieres REP, the extended producer liability statement system) to implement waste furniture, scrap electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), household packaging, waste batteries and batteries (PA), waste paper, fluoridated gas (GF), old tires (PU) and scrap vehicles (ELV)

The French WEEE Directive requires you to register all electronic equipment before putting it on the market. In order to do this you must apply for a WEEE number and regularly report the quantity sold ensuring that the products are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. The registrations are not EU wide and must be done separately France.

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.
