1- What are activity reports?
They are the means by which ANREEE is informed of the products (EEE and/or B&A) that are placed on Portuguese territory
2- Why is it mandatory to submit activity reports?
ANREEE is legally obliged to:
• Collect and control the EEE and B&A quantities that are placed in Portugal
• Define the Portuguese market
• Inform the APA (Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente-Portuguese Environmental Agency) of these results; the results are subsequently transmitted to the European Commission
The only way to fulfill these requests is through the activity reports submitted by the companies.
This information is vital to control if the targets set by the European Commission are being achieved.
For that reason, the activity reports are mandatory for the registered companies. With those reports we can provide real market data.
As a result, it is FUNDAMENTAL to have the companies’ collaboration.
3- When should the activity reports be submitted?
The activity reports are submitted annually, for both EEE and B&A. In January you should declare the products that were placed on the Portuguese market in the previous year (from 1st of January to 31st of December)
4- What information is necessary to submit an activity record?
4.1- for EEE:
a.EEE Collective Scheme;
b.Type of producer: Manufacturer, Own brand Retailer, Importer
c.EEE category: Category 1, category 2, (…), Category 10
d.EEE subcategory: related to the chosen category: 1.1; 1.2;(…);10.5
e.Total amount of EEE in that subcategory
f.Total weight (kg)
4.2 – for B&A
a.B&A Collective Scheme
b.Type of B&A: Portable, Industrial, Vehicles
c.Type of producer: Manufacturer, Own brand Retailer, Importer
d.Chemical element of the B&A
e.Total amount of EEE in that category
f.Total weight (kg)
5- Must the activity reports of EEE and P&A be done separately?
No. Since many EEE producers are also B&A producers, the dates in which the activity reports are to be submitted are the same. Both are submitted on the ANREEE IT platform, on the company’s restricted area, on the “Declarações” tab. Nonetheless, they are different products, so each product has its own form.
