For already registered producers

The PRNs of the companies that have been allocated with the applicable until now process of integration in the Registry of producers will not be valid after joining the EMPA. As a result, all companies will be given a new PRN, which will in fact be the same for all potential waste management streams in which the company participates as a producer (e.g. WEEE, batteries & accumulators, packaging, etc.).

According to an announcement by the Hellenic Recycling Agency (, the deadline for submitting applications to enter the Registry of Producers (EMPA) is extended until Friday, July 1, 2016. Beyond the closing date, article 20 of Law 2939/2001 (Sanctions) will be implemented for the liable producers of EEE and accumulators & batteries.
