Solutions for distance sellers

Since 1st July 2014, foreign distance retailers who supply their electrical equipment to Austrian consumers must have a designated so-called "Authorised Representative". For batteries these obligations are valid from 1st january 2022.

We provide this "Authorised Representative" through our ARAplus Service Company and deal with your registration in the Austrian Company Register as well as fulfil your consequent reporting and information obligations to the public authorities with regard to the waste electrical equipment ordinance and/or battery ordinance. 

The appointment requires power of attorney, i.e. the authorisiing signature must be certified by a notary, because otherwise registration with the public authorities cannot be carried out. Please note that the registration is valid for a quarter at a time.

After successful registration, ARAplus, as your "Authorised Representative", will complete all of the contract documents on your behalf so that a legally-recognised release of your waste electrical equipment can take place.
