Audit of declarations by members producing household equipment
In compliance with its approved specifications, ecosystem each year checks more than 15% 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 allows 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 an each audit, each member enjoys a personalised debriefing session in order to better understand and implement the reporting methods and corrections.
In 2019, the understanding and the application of the reference information in the 25 companies audited (accounting for 15% of tonnages) were audited in regards to the declarations of equipment introduced onto the market in 2017 and 2018. The main recommendations made were related to improving management and reporting processes as well as the introduction of a second in-house audit.
