From EU to DK
The Directive on end-of-life vehicles (the ELV Directive) establishes common EU rules on the management of end-of-life vehicles. The rules take offset in environmental considerations and aim to limit inappropriate disposal of ELVs.
Producer responsibility has authority in the Danish Environmental Protection Act as reflected in the so-called Statutory Order on End-of-Life Vehicles.
Legislation applies to all producers and importers placing passenger cars (M1) and small trucks (N1) on the Danish market. In addition, car breakers, dealers, recycling industries, and citizens etc. are regulated in part of this regulation.
