Eco-participation

Since November 15, 2006, regulations relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) have been in place in France as part of a European Directive. State-approved eco-organizations are responsible for organizing the treatment and recycling of your old equipment.

What are the implications for the consumer?

    The creation of an eco-participation on all new appliances sold in France from 15 November 2006;
    The free return of your old appliance (at the rate of one appliance returned for an equivalent appliance purchased) deposited at our logistics centre in Paris.

Eco-tax in detail
The amount depends on each device. It varies from a few cents to 13 € and is indicated on your bill. This tax is collected by a state-approved eco-organization that will finance companies and local authorities in charge of logistics, treatment and recycling of WEEE. You can consult the scale of eco-participations on the Eco-systèmes website.
Remuneration for private copying

The Intellectual Property Code (CPI) provides that any reproduction of a work is subject to the prior authorization of the author and/or holders of related rights (performers, producers). However, the law has however added exceptions to this right of reproduction, including the so-called "private copying" exception which grants the purchaser of a work the right to copy it onto a recording medium for his or her personal use. Remuneration for private copying is collected by Copie France from manufacturers of blank recording media. Remuneration for private copying contributes to cultural dynamism and the development of creative activity in France; 25% of the amounts collected as remuneration are dedicated to actions of cultural interest.
