Audit of declarations by members producing small fire extinguishers (SFE)

In compliance with its approved specifications, ecosystem each year checks more than20 % of the tonnages declared by auditing its producer members. . These audits check that the information reported is correct and complies with the reference information provided by ecosystem, based on the fee scale and guide documents. It also enables 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 understanding and the application of the reference were assessed for each of the 3 companies audited (accounting for 21% of tonnages) in regards to declarations of equipment introduced onto the market in 2017 and 2018.

At the end of an each audit, each member enjoys a personalised report in order to better understand and implement the reporting methods and corrections. It was therefore possible to correct a few errors such as items wrongly declared for export.
