What is the definition of ‘textiles’?
The new regulation for EPR applies to all companies that professionally offer clothing on the Dutch market. This means all manufacturers and importers of consumer clothing, workwear and corporate clothing as well as table, bed, table and household linen.
Furthermore, it does not matter whether the textiles are offered to a company (B2B) or to end consumers (B2C, D2C). This also applies to textiles which are made from partially recycled material.
Excluded from the regulation are:
- Dutch second-hand shops, because these clothes already exist on the market;
- Companies that supply basic materials for production.
In a nutshell – the Textile EPR applies to all companies that sell clothing and household textiles on the Dutch market, whether to private or commercial end consumers.
