Gesetz über das Inverkehrbringen, die Rücknahme und die umweltverträgliche Entsorgung von Elektro- und Elektronikgeräten (Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz - ElektroG)

"Registration obligation

You are obliged to register if you

* are a producer according to ElektroG and
* the products on offer are electrical and electronic equipment within the scope of the ElektroG.

A registration obligation means that you must be in possession of a ‘permit’ with your registration order before placing electrical and electronic equipment on the market (see What does placing on the market according to ElektroG mean?). This obligation exists for each and every producer and, in the case of authorised representation according to § 8 ElektroG, for each individual authorised representative."
