Auditing of declarations by members producing household equipment
Each year, in accordance with its authority approval specifications, ecosystem verifies more than 15% of the tonnages declared through audits of its producer members. These audits check that the information is correctly reported and that it complies with the reference framework provided by ecosystem, based on the fee scale and guide documents. They also enable any errors observed in the reporting to be identified and assessed.
Any sticking points, misunderstandings or points requiring further clarification to improve reporting quality are given special attention as are producer best practices. The correct application of the eco-fee and the availability of associated supporting documentation are also verified. At the end of each audit, each member enjoys a personalised report in order to better understand and implement the reporting methods and adjustments.
In 2020, the understanding and the application of the reference framework were assessed for each of the 18 companies audited (accounting for 15% of tonnages) for declarations of equipment introduced onto the market in 2018 and 2019. The main recommendations made focused on improving management and reporting processes as well as systematic archiving of documents evidencing eco-modulation criteria.
