WEEE Number for Amazon Sellers: What is it and why is it important?

As an Amazon seller, you must ensure that you comply with all applicable policies and laws when selling goods in the EU. One of the most important requirements is to register for a WEEE number.

WEEE means Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and is an EU directive that ensures environmentally friendly disposal of said equipment. The WEEE number is a registration number assigned by the competent regional authorities. It proves that a manufacturer, importer or distributor of electrical and electronic equipment is listed in the relevant register.

If you sell electrical and electronic equipment as an Amazon seller in the EU, you are required to register and obtain a WEEE number. This number must appear on your website and in your product description. It shows your customers and the responsible regional authorities that you have fulfilled the registration obligation and took responsibility for the proper disposal of electrical and electronic waste.

Why is the WEEE number so important?

Registering and using a WEEE number is not only a legal requirement, but also a significant contribution towards better environmental protection. Waste electrical and electronic equipment contains hazardous materials such as lead, mercury and cadmium, which can affect the environment if not properly disposed of. By registering and correctly labeling your products with a WEEE number, you make an important contribution to environmental conservation and manifest that you act as an environmentally friendly and responsible seller.

If you sell electrical and electronic equipment through Amazon in the EU, it is important that you understand the requirements and obligations of the WEEE number. Make sure you register and label your products correctly in time to avoid potential fines and make an important contribution to environmental protection.

More info from Amazon:

For your information: The WEEE number is required by Amazon when offering products in the electrical and electronic equipment category, regardless of whether they are active or passive electronics. If this number cannot be provided by 07/31/23, all products in these categories will be blocked. Products must also be properly labeled to meet the requirements. Experience has shown that many manufacturers do not provide sufficient documentation and labeling or the number, if they offer products from China, for example. As the first distributor, the seller automatically becomes the manufacturer and is therefore responsible for these aspects himself.
