What is E.P.R.?

And why register?

On January 1, 2007, the law introduced the principle of "Extended Producer Responsibility" (E.P.R) for textile products, household linen and footwear sold in France. E.R.P. also applies to numerous other economic sectors (electrical and electronic equipment, paper, packaging, lightbulbs, batteries, etc.).

It obliges producers to provide for or contribute towards the management of waste for articles placed on the market for consumers.

What does "provide for or contribute towards" mean?
