Products placed on the market are reported in a web-reporting portal

All producers that have a transfer agreement with SELT Association, ICT Producer cooperative or FLIP Association or have appointed Elker Ltd as their authorised representative in Finland report their products placed on the Finnish market in a web-reporting portal quarterly.

All foreign producers that have made an agreement on authorised representation with Elker Ltd report in the same portal.

In web-reporting all EE-products placed on the Finnish and Åland Islands markets are reported separately. From this information, the statistics concerning WEEE are put together on behalf of the producers by the producer organisations for the supervising authority (annual report).
