Liable companies and products

Companies subject to the law

You are considered as a "producer" (or “marketer”) if you manufacture, import, assemble or introduce for the first time on the national market (Metropolitan France and local authorities listed below), intended for households, clothing textiles, household linen and shoes.

According to the cases, can be regarded as sender on the market: 

  • A manufacturer or instructing party selling under its brand name articles manufactured in France or abroad;

  • An importer (wholesaler or retailer) of national and international brands

  • A distributor of own brand or directly imported products (multi-brand).

Find article L541-10 of the Environment Code on your regulatory obligations.

For information, to date, no marketers are exempted from paying their contribution. For example, self-employed entrepreneurs must also register and declare their quantities placed on the market.

If you are a marketplace operator, you have the status of marketer for your own products (unique identifier and declaration), but also on behalf of your third-party sellers, unless the third parties for whom you facilitate the sale have already fulfilled their obligations (i.e. if they already get a UIN for our Textile, Linen and Footwear sector).

Once the third-party sellers have fulfilled their obligations, as a marketplace you are obliged to keep a register of your third-party sellers with their information, unique identifiers and quantities marketed by category. 

Please note this register of third-party sellers must be made available for audits.

If you are a service provider/administrator, please note the following important information:

  • A service provider/administrator is not a marketer, their client companies are. Each of their companies must therefore be registered and declared to Refashion.

  • You can/should register the companies for which you are the service provider/administrator directly with Refashion (go to the "To regularize yourself" page); you do not have to register as a service provider/agent.

  • You must keep the POA of each producer at the disposal of Refashion.

  • Refashion is not a partner of any service provider/agent, they are independent and work on their own behalf.

  • Refashion does not certify any service provider/administrator. We only contract with the "marketer" company that join Refashion. Therefore, we do not provide any certification or contract.

  • Refashion does not support the creation of service provider/agent organizations in any way, and cannot provide any information in this regard, so please do not contact us in this regard. All membership information is on our website.
