Sorting Signage
The Anti-Waste Circular Economy Law 2020-105 (AGEC) introduced a new Article L541-9-3 to the French Environmental Code making the Triman logo plus the accompanying sorting information mandatory for all products subject to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) requirements in France other than household glass beverage packaging. This includes Childcare articles that fall under the furniture and bedding sector.

This sorting signage3 consisting of the Triman logo and information specifying the methods of sorting or bringing in waste from the product must be specified as close as possible to the product, on its packaging, or in the other documents provided with the product. Information on the website remains possible but does not replace the mention of one of the three elements mentioned above.

Furniture and bedding that are subject to the EPR provision have been effective since 15 December 2022. Childcare articles, like highchairs, changing tables, baby bouncers and bath seats, that fall under the EPR scope of the category are required to comply with the Triman sorting instruction requirements.
