Refunds

Everyone (participant and third party) is entitled to a refund of the recycling fee if they have taken EEE from the market in the territory of the Czech Republic. Withdrawal from the market means the export of EEE to countries outside the Czech Republic. In this case, they can ask EKOLAMP for a refund of the fee paid. The refund procedure for participants of the EKOLAMP compliance scheme and for third parties is regulated by the Public Offer for concluding a contract for the return of the recycling fee, which can be found including the Application and other necessary documents here.
