Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Latvia

TE does not have a sales office or approved distributor in Latvia. Instead, TE products are sold directly to business end-users in Latvia from sales offices in other Member States.

Selling products directly to an end-user in another Member State is known as 'distance selling'. The WEEE Directive and Member State WEEE Regulations state that TE is not responsible for WEEE arising from distance sales of business products directly to the business end-user in other Member States. Instead, it is the business end-user's responsibility to ensure that products which they buy through distance selling arrangements are managed in an environmentally responsible manner at end of life.
