The costs generated from the producer responsibility are divided among the producers in relation to their market shares, so it is important that the producers submit information about the amounts they place on the market in accordance with the agreed upon schedule. Based on the reported information, Recser Oy charges recycling fees for batteries and accumulators based on the currently valid recycling fee prices and reports to the authorities. Recycling fees are collected for all batteries and accumulators classified as portable placed on the market, as well as industrial accumulators whose size allows for manual carrying and portable lithium automotive accumulators. There are four reporting periods in each year.
The amounts placed on the market are reported through an electronic reporting system. The producers enter their amounts per price group separately for products placed on the market in Continental Finland and Åland in both total kilograms and pieces. If a company has not placed any portable batteries or accumulators on the market in a reporting period, the piece and kilogram fields on the reporting form for the period in question are filled out with 0 amounts.
