1. About The Producer Register Limited and these terms

These terms tell you the rules for using our website https://www.producerregister.ie  (our/the “Site”).

The Site operated by The Producer Register Limited, referred to as “we” or “us”. We are a limited company registered in Ireland under company number 574305 and have our registered office at Unit 47, Northwood Court, Santry, Dublin 9, Ireland.

We act as the “Registration Body” under S.I. No. 400/2017 - Waste Management (Tyres and Waste Tyres) Regulations 2017, as amended, S.I. No. 283/2014 - European Union (Batteries and Accumulators) Regulations 2014 and S.I. No. 149/2014 - European Union (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations 2014, (together, the “Regulations”) and have approval from the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment (previously the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government) to perform the functions of the Registration Body under the Regulations, which include the registration of producers of electrical and electronic equipment, batteries, accumulators and tyres (“Producers”) in Ireland.

2. Use of the Site

The Site contains two sections. The Site is publicly accessible and contains general information about us and the Regulations and the public register of Producers. There is a restricted log-in section that is for Producers to view their information and submit registration applications and other information to us. The terms applicable to your use of the Site depend on whether you are a general visitor or a Producer. Please be advised that the materials contained on (and the publications provided within) the Site are not intended to provide, and do not constitute or comprise, advice on any particular matter. They are provided for general information purposes only in furtherance of our statutory functions under the Regulations.

3. Acceptance of the terms

Your use of the Site is subject to these terms and conditions of use. By using the Site, you confirm that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to comply with them. If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use the Site.

You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of these terms of use and other applicable terms and conditions and that they comply with them.

Only persons who are, or who are acting on behalf of, Producers registered on the Site’s online registration system (“Registered Producers”), may access the “Registered Producers’ Section” (the “Producers’ Services”) of the Site.

  • Registered Producers must change the password they receive from us promptly on their first access to the Registered Producers’ Section of the Site. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your log in information.
  • Moreover, as a Registered Producer, you acknowledge that any connection or transmission of data made with or from your account will be assumed to have been made by you. We shall not be responsible whatsoever in the event that your password is misappropriated or misused by an agent and / or a third party. You must immediately inform us of any unauthorised use of your User ID and / or password by emailing us at info@producerregister.ie.
