How to be EPR compliant in France?

To be EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) compliant in France, you need to register at a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to obtain your Unique Identification Number(s) (UINs). After the registration, the UINs will be automatically generated via ADEME (l’Agence de la transition écologique) and issued to the respective PRO. The PRO will transfer the new number to its registered members. You need this UIN(s) as proof of compliance. Once registered of a PRO, you must declare your sales (of products covered by the different EPR categories) to the PRO for the applicable reporting period and pay eco-contributions to your PRO. The PRO will then take responsibility for the collection and recycling of your product.
