Mission and Assignments
ANREEE, a non-profit private Association, started its register activities in July 2005 and it was licensed by the Portuguese Environmental Agency, in 23rd March 2006.
Afterwards it was licensed for the B&A register in 17th December 2009 by the same official body.
ANREEE’s mission is to assure, organize and keep the mandatory register of EEE (Electric and Electronic Equipment, DL 230/2004 of 10th December, altered by DL 132/2010 of 17th December) and B&A (Batteries and Accumulators, DL 6/2009 of 6th January) producers. This will allow the monitoring and financial control of their obligations and objectives, laid down in these diplomas and in other relevant legislation.

their producers/companies. These quantities are
annually controlled (this information is strictly confidential)

products and measure the residue management
adequately. Consequently, the residue will be treated
and valued in order to cause as little damage to environment
