ANREEEs mission is to create, organize and make available the register of EEE producers in order to monitor and control the fulfilment of producer's obligations and objectives, as established in the corresponding decree and other applicable legislation. The Producer's register – ANREEE – works as an entity which controls the EEE quantities that each producer annually puts on the market (information subject to a strict observation of confidentiality), and also follows up on the life cycle of each EEE by means of the information received from the management systems. Thus, it is always possible to follow up on the adequate WEEE management so that it can be properly valued and treated, by reducing the environmental damage to a minimum. ANREEE also informs the competent public entities and alerts them to possible violations of the registering obligation, established in the already mentioned decree. ANREEE also issues the Register's Certificates for registered producers.
