ECOTIC is the first organization of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) producers and importers in Romania, founded in 2006 in order to bring more efficiency and homogeneity in fulfilling their environmental responsibilities.
ECOTIC manages waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) on behalf of approx XNUMX affiliated producers and importers.
ECOTIC ensures and supervises the entire process of taking over, transport, dismantling and recycling so that, in the end, WEEE is no longer a danger. 250 000 tons of WEEE have been managed in the ECOTIC system from the beginning until today. Prompt and specialized advice offered to producers of electrical equipment, batteries and accumulators is a defining element of ECOTIC.
In addition to managing the responsibilities of producers, ECOTIC actively contributes to informing the Romanian population about the importance of separate collection of these types of waste, through a series of projects dedicated to both schools and companies and the entire community.
ECOTIC introduced in 2007, for the first time in the Romanian market, the Green® Stamp, a symbol that has become in time, for consumers, a guarantee of WEEE management.
TV or Green stamp is the remuneration meant to cover the costs of collection, reuse, recycling, recovery and non-polluting disposal of WEEE and the costs of consumer awareness, activities that must be financed by EEE producers, according to art. 28-32 of GEO 5/2015.
Since 2011, ECOTIC is certified in accordance with the integrated standard of the quality management system ISO 9001: 2015, of the environmental management system ISO 14001: 2015, and since 2012, with the standard ISO 27001: 2017 (information security), receiving recertification at each assessment.
ECOTIC CONSTANTLY ACTS ON THREE LARGE LEVELS TO HAVE EFFICIENCY IN ITS PROPOSED ACTIVITIES:
Continuous and sustained development of waste collection - recycling - capitalization of waste
Informing the Romanian public about the need to collect and recycle WEEE and DBA (waste batteries and accumulators)

The management of the ECOTIC Organization is ensured by the General Assembly of the Associates.
