Count on us to assist you
ARAplus offers numerous consultancy products and services in the field of packaging compliance, WEEE compliance and batteries compliance. Process checks, establishing your packaging amounts or guidance on international compliance are just a few examples of what we can do for you.
Compliance service for packaging, WEEE and batteries
We help you meet your producer responsibility obligations and take on all your obligations under the Austrian Packaging Ordinance, WEEE Ordinance and Batteries Ordinance.
We check all processes you have in place at your company to identify optimisation potential: Can you be sure you allocate packaging to the right category? What are your procedures for handling the different types of waste? How do you establish the amount of packaging you place on the market? Based on our findings we come up with suggestions for improvement which focus on ensuring that your processes are legally compliant.
Why not use our Sampling editor tool to calculate your compliance fee? This tool is right for you if your company has a large range of items. The editor uses 200 items and grosses up the sample to your company’s full range of items. Our method has been checked and approved by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management.
We will be there for you every step of the way when your company is audited by the Packaging Coordination Board. Our experts have in-depth knowledge of all relevant laws and regulations, so they can clear up any questions as soon as they arise and help you address any legitimate concerns the Packaging Coordination Board may have. Our role is similar to that of a tax consultant during a tax check.
Establishing your quantities – guidance and implementation
We help you develop a solution for establishing your quantities that is tailored to your company’s needs, legally compliant and efficient. And we help you with implementation so you can save valuable time and resources.
Guidance on international compliance
Your company operates internationally but you don’t want to deal with the different reporting systems in your target markets? With ARAplus by your side, you’ll get the paperwork done quickly and hassle-free. Ensuring international compliance will be much more efficient this way.
We’ll save you hours on paperwork and make it easy for you to ensure legal certainty and be audit proof: Use our database to make your legally binding declarations available at the push of a button or download the declarations issued by your contracting partners. No more need to worry about obtaining legally binding declarations.
Authorised representative for foreign manufacturers
You want to keep overhead to a minimum when exporting packaging or packaged goods to Austria? As your authorised representative, we can arrange all legal requirements on your behalf. It’s simple, secure and direct.
Roadshow on packaging compliance
We are happy to share our knowledge with your employees. When both parties are in the know, we’ll get things done more quickly, and our solutions will be better for it. Our ARA Academy training programme covers practice-oriented issues (legal framework, classification of packaging, data submission etc.) and boosts motivation.
