Creditworthiness assessment for producers
All applications will undergo a creditworthiness assessment. If a company is not granted affiliation rights, there are, however, a few alternative ways of becoming an affiliated partner. One is to apply via a third party (a consultancy firm, for example) which then assumes liability for any payments to be made. Another possibility for companies that are part of a group which in turn has a good credit score is to let the group assume producer responsibility. If an assessment indicates that a company is creditworthy to a certain degree, El-Kretsen may request additional information on the volumes expected and the categories of EEE and/or battery the company is planning on placing on the Swedish market. In cases where there is not enough data to make a creditworthiness assessment, the same information as the above may be requested and used in combination with the company’s annual report or similar information.
