Producer Requirements

Joint programmes (collective compliance): EEE producers may comply under Ministry approved joint plans, submitted by compliance organisations. Producers may only join one compliance organisation at any given time and may only change compliance organisation or compliance option after one year under the current programme.

Individual compliers: The approval and operational requirements for individual compliers are largely identical to those of collective compliers (take back WEEE from all municipalities, etc.). Therefore, individual compliance is hardly feasible in practice for all but a very large B2C producer or a producer of specific B2B products.

All producers (B2B and B2C) are obligated and the same compliance options and conditions apply as for B2C EEE producers.

Registration, collection and recycling obligations for batteries producers

Producers of portable batteries

Producers can join a collective scheme and transfer legal responsibility to the scheme Individual compliance is permitted although a waste plan must be submitted for approval for individual systems.

Producers of industrial batteries

Individual compliance is permitted although a waste plan must be submitted for approval for individual systems.

Packaging requirements

Obligated parties must register and submit data based on the amount of packaging handled, to the Ministry of Environment.

The deadline for meeting recycling targets in Slovenia is delayed until 31 December 2012 in accordance with the amendment to the revised Directive, 2005/20/EC.

Obligated parties must ensure:

  • regular collection of the packaging component of municipal waste from the collection centres of the municipal waste management service's contractors;
  • collection of commercial and industrial packaging waste from end-users or acceptance of this material at a collection point;
  • the reuse, reprocessing or disposal of the collected packaging waste.

Packaging producers, importers, packer/fillers and retailers who comply individually must obtain Environment Ministry approval. They must submit annual reports on their activities. The packaging waste collected must be reused, recovered or disposed of by the end of the calendar year following the year of collection. The Decree sets out a number of requirements that companies carrying out their own waste handling must fulfill, and provides that they must pay a waste packaging handling company in respect of any packaging that ends up in the handling company's collection system.

Thresholds

There is a de minimis limit to exempt some from the obligations. Those placing less than 15 tonnes of packaging on the market per annum do not need to report data or register with the Environment Ministry
