Ecosurety have been part of the working group that has created a recognised methodology of how producers can deduct exports from their quarterly EEE data reporting that will meet audit criteria.
Deducting exported EEE from that placed on the UK market can help reduce producer’s obligation, as long as these new published guidelines are followed.
For EEE that has been placed on the UK market and has then been exported in the same compliance year (January to December), the producer can deduct the amount exported, and resubmit revised data if it relates to a prior quarter. EEE that has been placed on the UK market in one compliance year, but has been exported in the following compliance year cannot be deducted.
Producers must keep records of the amount of EEE placed on the UK market and the amount of EEE that was subsequently exported. The producer should use the best evidence they have of the amount of EEE exported within the compliance year.
Where producers are deducting exports, Ecosurety will need to have audited the evidence held by the producer to ensure it meet these guidelines and is correct. Data or information that should stand up to auditing by Ecosurety and the Environment Agency would include:
Evidence of export held by a producer or scheme must be made available to the Environment Agencies on request. To support with this process your account manager can help with this simple audit form which will help towards deducting exported EEE data:
If you deduct exports from your EEE data returns, producers must complete, sign and return the Exported EEE data audit form, to confirm the records held meet these guidelines.
