A distance seller is any person or organisation that sells Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and/or batteries by means of electronic communication, voice telephony services including telesales and telemarketing or non-electronic direct marketing services including mail order. A distance seller, whether or not based in Ireland, supplying directly into Ireland will have producer obligations under the regulations, unless the company is sourcing EEE and batteries through a registered supply chain. Often, distance sellers will also be supplying EEE and/or batteries directly to a household end user, in which case they will have distributor obligations also.
For more information on distance sellers and advertising guidelines go to the Guidance and Downloads section.
