The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) fee has been calculated in accordance with the requirements of the EPR regulations and the Lighting Sector Notice (No.43881), the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Sector Notice (No. 43880) and the Paper and Packaging Notice (No. 43882), and is based on the following material points:
a. weight of product
b. ease of recyclability
c. current demand for the material for recycling purposes
d. costs for establishing a collection system for the identified products
e. collection, transport, storage and treatment costs for separately collected waste
f. administrative costs
g. costs for public communication and awareness-raising (on waste prevention, separate collection, etc.)
h. costs for the appropriate surveillance of the system (including auditing)
i. less revenues from recycled material sales (if applicable)
Nett cost recovery including a differentiated rate per item category, of each product or class of product, which must be paid by a producer to fund extended producer responsibility schemes and is dependent on the following:
Weight of the identified product
Ease of recyclability
Current demand for the material for recycling purposes
Costs for establishing a collection system for the identified products
Collection, transport, storage and treatment costs for separately collected waste
Costs for public communication and awareness raising
Costs for appropriate surveillance of the system
Less revenue from recycled material sales
The EPR fee will be reviewed annually based on the actual volume and collection performance.

A lamp is any of various devices producing artificial light, from an energy source, such as a direct or indirect electric current, oil or gas.
A light source is anything that makes light. Artificial light sources include lampposts and televisions. Without light sources we could not see the world around us, however not every object we can see is a light source.
A light fixture, light fitting, or luminaire is an electrical device used to create artificial light by use of an electric lamp. All light fixtures have a fixture body and a light socket to hold the lamp and allow for its replacement. Fixtures may also have a switch to control the light.
A laser light is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation. The word "laser" is an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation".
Pixel lighting is used with digital controllers that allows the user to program and fully control individual LEDs or groups of LEDs, depending on the product. This granular level of control allows pixel products to produce a dazzling array of lighting effects and patterns, including video.
An LED is an electric light that produces light using light-emitting diodes.
Electrical and electronic equipment is defined as equipment which is dependent on electric currents or electromagnetic fields in order to work properly, and includes equipment for the generation, transfer and measurement of such currents and fields
Equipment, which is dependent upon, stores, converts, transmits or enables an electric current or Electromagnetic field and equipment for the generation, transfer and measurement of such currents and fields:
Large equipment (any external dimension more than 100cm)
Medium equipment (any external dimension between 50 and 100cm)
Small equipment (no external dimension more than 50 cm)
Packaging means any material, container or wrapping or corrugated cases, used for the containment, transport, handling, protection, promotion, marketing or sale of any product or substance, which may be primary packaging, containing the actual product or secondary packaging or tertiary packaging, typically containing products already packaged in primary packaging, but excludes—
Paper means any substance made from wood pulp, rags, straw, or other fibrous material used for writing, printing, or as a wrapping material;
The Notice applies to waste which arises from the use by a consumer or an end-user of—
