ErionProfessional is the first Italian Collective Scheme dedicated to Producers placing on the market only professional Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE).
ErionProfessional was created through the will of the major Producers which it represents, to provide a specialised service for the collection and valorisation of professional Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in order to comply in an ethical, certified and cost-effective way with national and European regulatory requirements.
Thanks to a consolidated network of relationships with the various stakeholders and a strong characterisation and focus on innovation, ErionProfessional represents the perfect ally for the implementation of development initiatives and strategic projects and a reference point for the provision of operational collection and treatment services for B2B WEEE.
ErionProfessional is part of Erion, a multi-compliance system for the management of all waste associated to electronic products, with a solid heritage in terms of authoritativeness, efficiency and quality. It originates from the strategic vision, experience and success of the two most representative WEEE Consortia, Ecodom and Remedia, which have always been a point of reference for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) systems. The Members of the two Consortia decided to establish an innovative entity capable of seizing market opportunities by interconnecting the various actors in the chain and ensuring the highest standards of treatment, transparency, safety and operational efficiency in full compliance with environmental regulations, creating value for the benefit of stakeholders, society and the environment.
The Erion System is made up of four non-profit Collective Scheme providing regulatory compliance services, with transversal and specific skills along different type of waste streams:
It combines and builds on the excellence of Ecodom and Remedia in the management of Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
Thanks to the governance entrusted directly to the Producers, Erion Professional ensures and supports – in the interest and on behalf of its Members – the implementation of all the legal requirements for the proper management of professional WEEE in compliance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 49/2014.
ErionProfessional is the only national non-profit Collective Scheme dedicated solely to the management of professional Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, with significant quotas of responsibility in the WEEE system.
Waste from professional Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Professional WEEE is waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment designed exclusively for professional use or generated by commercial and administrative activities but which, due to its nature or quantities, cannot be considered as WEEE from households.
Erion Professional is the Collective Scheme of the Erion System dedicated exclusively to the management of professional WEEE.
ErionProfessional Producers place great importance on environmental protection. For this reason, the high quality standards of the services provided, the careful use of appropriate safety procedures, the strategic investments in research and development and the constant commitment to the issues of environmental and economic sustainability represent the strengths of the Collective Scheme.
ErionProfessional can also count on the strategic skills of TSR, the company which over the years has become a point of reference in the recycling industry for its ability to select and coordinate, throughout the national territory, operators and treatment plants of the highest standard.
The legislation requires the Producer of professional EEE to manage and finance the collection of new professional WEEE when the end user requests it in having decided to dispose of it. Instead, in the case of historical professional WEEE the responsibility lies with the Producer only in the case of supply of a new EEE to replace an equivalent one.
In so far as applicable, Producers organise and manage differentiated collection systems of professional WEEE and bear the related costs, according to the principle of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
Producers joining ErionProfessional are subject to payment only on-demand, i.e. only when the collection of the waste is requested.
To meet all of its Members’ needs, Erion Professional has also introduced voluntary generational financing models for managing B2B compliance: Producers can collectively finance the collection of professional waste, exactly as happens today for the household WEEE system.
ErionProfessional. Italian excellence, international vision.
The Collective Scheme’s objective is the establishment of efficient and effective models of Extended Producer Responsibility. Thanks to its non-profit nature and its Italian leadership position, ErionProfessional can enjoy a privileged position and well-established relationships with many different stakeholders: institutions, research institutes and international associations and organisations, fostering a fruitful dialogue on the most relevant issues related to the management of professional WEEE.
