on sellers :

1. After Alibaba adds new control categories, it means that EPR categories will be added accordingly . For example, a seller originally sold toy products containing batteries. Before the policy changed, the seller only needed to register the battery and packaging categories. After the policy update, the seller not only needed to register the battery and packaging categories, but also the toy category.

2. After Alibaba added French EPR control rules, sellers that meet the requirements not only need to register for the additional EPR categories, but also need to declare waste for the new product categories as scheduled.


AGC reminds:

Since Alibaba’s new French EPR control rules came into effect on January 4 , sellers must follow the platform’s reminders to ensure that relevant products sold to France meet the relevant French EPR laws and regulations. For merchants that do not comply with French laws, regulations and compliance requirements, The platform may take corresponding measures to deal with it. It is recommended that sellers make adjustments according to the rules of the platform to avoid risks in a timely manner and ensure the smooth sales of goods in overseas markets.
