Intermediaries and distributors must register with Dansk Retursystem.

Based on the current Statutory Order, an intermediary is:

A wholesaler or other enterprise without a retail outlet that markets beverage products to stores, distributors, recipients of returns or other intermediaries.

Based on the current Statutory Order, a distributor is:

A central warehouse or similar enterprise that distributes beverage products on which deposits are payable in packaging to its own stores or receives empty packaging for beverage products on which deposits are payable from these stores and that is not an intermediary.

Intermediaries must:

Report their sales and returns figures for refillable packaging.

However, intermediaries that exclusively sell disposable packaging do not have to register with Dansk Retursystem.

Distributors must:

Report both their sales and returns figures for refillable packaging and their sales figures for disposable packaging.

Handling fee

Intermediaries and distributors are usually not eligible to claim a handling fee. Only in circumstances in which they operate as a grocery store stocking a wide range of products may they apply to receive a handling fee. Contact Dansk Retursystem to find out more about this.
