Since January 1st, 2022, Article L. 541-10-9 of the Environmental Code, provides that marketplaces are in charge of the EPR obligations and declare the products of its third-party sellers that do not have an unique identification number (UIN).
The marketplace thus assumes the status of producer:
- For quantities placed on the market under its brand;
- For quantities marketed on behalf of third parties who do not have an UIN
The marketplace is required to maintain a register of the UINs of third-parties for whom it facilitates sales.
