Multi-Waste Streams and Multi-Country

Manufacturers that are active in multiple markets have to face challenges for more than just one waste stream (for example, WEEE, Batteries or Packaging) along with different obligations in many countries.

Multinational producers are confronted with a complex and time-consuming registration process, coordinating membership applications, as well as contractual requirements with the relevant national authorities, authorised representatives and producer compliance schemes.

Producing accurate extended producer responsibility (EPR) reports is also essential to ensure that companies stay compliant and correctly manage their costs. Data processing, transformation and classification are key to this process.


Data Management

With our detailed knowledge of scheme rules, worldwide regulations and reporting categories we manage multi-waste stream obligations in multiple markets for customers.

Full customer reviews as well as provision of data services in markets with existing EPR regulations (including EMEA, USA, Canada and Australia) and new markets where EPR legislation is coming into force

Covering markets in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, this programme comprises:

Regulatory Tracking

Environmental compliance is constantly changing. As more and more countries follow Europe’s regulatory approach, and introduce improved legislation, the challenge becomes global.

Organisations have to stay on top of many regulatory, funding and reporting arrangements – all in a variety of languages.

‘Translating’ the laws means that it is not enough to simply know the obligations, but to have the capacity to really understand what they mean and how to comply with them.


We operate more producer compliance schemes than any other company globally, and our multi-lingual expert teams keep our customers informed of regulatory requirements and guide them through the maze of legislation.

For manufacturers and distributors, we put together all the laws, regulations and essential information on EPR in our Regulatory Tracking Reports.

Chemical Compliance

Companies that manufacture, place on the market or use chemical substances have to deal with many regulations.

As more countries follow Europe’s regulatory approach, and introduce improved chemical legislation, the challenge to comply is becoming increasingly global – whether you make chemicals for lubricants, mining products, cosmetics or pharmaceuticals.


With our chemical regulatory solutions, we make sure that your chemicals are correctly pre-registered, registered, reported and labelled – and that all your data is efficiently generated, managed and maintained.

Circul8

Transparency on take-back activities, material flows, downstream channels and related cost is key for driving efficient take-back processes. Our software products help to achieve that day by day.

To facilitate true circularity however, it is imperative to work on a comprehensive picture and to include neighbouring processes.

The Circul8 software suite allows to manage take-back and environmental compliance activities side by side within one system. 
Ultimately, Circul8 aims to provide a backbone to holistic circular process management. 


Circul8 covers all essential aspects to live up to Circular Economy principles:

Environmental Compliance Reporting Management

To enable automated reporting of obligated volumes to different compliance schemes across all material streams, followed by in-depth analysis and scenario planning options.

Operational Take-Back management (voluntary or via EPR-scheme)

To manage every step in the process from pick-up order placement through to the final recycling of resources that can then be fed back into the manufacturing process.

EPR-scheme Management

To facilitate efficient sourcing/collecting and licensing/volume assignment, mass flow management, compliance controlling and reporting to central authority bodies.

Knowledge Management

To keep up to date with extended producer responsibility regulations and fulfilment options.

Regulatory Requirements and Obligations

For specific customer needs, we provide tailored proposals to assess legal obligations in the requested markets and produce summary reports.

Environmental Compliance: Management Services

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) obliges producers to take legal, financial and sometimes physical responsibility for the end-of-life treatment and disposal of their products.

Costs associated with EPR legislation can put companies at a competitive disadvantage, if not managed carefully. Incorrect management of EPR can also lead to legal penalties as well as damage to brand reputation.


We offer management services for compliance obligations to make sure that all products and goods are classified and reported correctly, and that only those products in scope are declared.

Environmental Compliance: Smart Sustainable Supply Chains

Businesses stand to achieve enormous financial gains by using their resources more sustainably and adapting to circular business models. The challenge is to match the needs of each organisation with their circular economy strategy and to provide knowledge and expertise in end-of-life projects and supply chain circularity.

Manufacturers can enhance their product sustainability by introducing recycled materials into their products.

The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) is the leading global environmental label for the IT sector. It helps producers of computers, displays, televisions, imaging equipment and mobile phones establish the green credentials of their products by supporting selection processes based on environmental attributes.


Our global and multi-disciplinary consultants are experts in EPR, eco-design, waste recycling, logistics, quality management and auditing – they offer all the services needed for end-of-life management projects and supply chain circularity.

Packaging

In many countries, manufacturers and distributors need to register and report the packaging that they put on the market. It can be challenging and time-consuming to make sure your packaging complies with all the necessary requirements.

Many countries also require manufacturers and distributors to regularly collect, sort and recycle their sales packaging in an environmentally friendly way.


To deal with these obligations effectively, and ensure compliance on either a national or international level, we offer our customers a range of services and solutions to meet their needs.
