Auditing of declarations by producer members
Each year, in accordance with our authority approval specifications, we verifie more than 15% of the tonnages declared through audits of our 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 framework were assessed for each of the 16 companies audited (accounting for 17% of tonnages) for declarations of equipment introduced onto the market in 2019 and 2020.
At the end of each audit, each member enjoys a personalised report in order to better understand and implement the reporting methods and adjustments. It was therefore possible to correct a few errors such as wrongly integrated references into the scope or those that should have been but were not.
