Shipment only to shipping addresses in the following countries:
One reason for this restriction of destination countries is the legislation on electronic waste, released in the EU directive 2012/19/EU on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), to experts also known as "WEEE 2".
Therein says Article 16, Registration, information and reporting: „(1) [...] Producers supplying EEE [electrical and electronic equipment] by means of distance communication [...] shall be registered in the Member State that they sell to. [...]“
This article is transferred into national legislation by every EU country.
The obligation to register in each country is a significant organisational and financial effort. For small enterprieses, as we are, this is not profitable. Thus, Bogobit is only registered in Germany, and in Switzerland. Consequently, shipment is restricted to these countries.
Another reason for this restriction of destination countries is legislation that may exist
individually for each country regarding packaging, with corresponding registration and reporting obligations and fees.
These country-specific obligations and fees lead to a significant organisational and financial effort.
For small enterprieses, as we are, this is not profitable.
