Note
  • The UIN is renewed every year (provided the marketer is still up to date with its contributions)

  • It must appear in your terms and conditions and in all contractual documents

  • There is a different UIN for each eco-organisation to which the marketer is subject

  • If a marketer ceases to meet its regulatory obligations, it loses its UIN and is subject to the sanctions provided for in article L. 541-9-5 of the Environmental Code (available in French only).

If you are still not a member and are seeking to obtain your UIN, the UIN is issued after the regularisation procedure (registration, declaration, payment).

To do this, please follow the registration/regularisation procedure indicated above.

Special case of marketplaces: the marketplace assumes the status of marketer on behalf of its third-party sellers, unless the third parties for whom it facilitates the sale have already fulfilled their obligations (i.e. if they hold an UIN for the Textile, Linen and Footwear sector). Please contact your marketplace to discuss this matter.
