Importers, producers and intermediaries that have to report their sales and return volumes need to follow a fixed standard.

To assist you with reporting, we have produced several templates as Excel spreadsheets.

Individual companies may decide whether to use the templates, but the formats must be followed for us to receive the information reported. We recommend that, for security reasons, all reporting data be encrypted before being sent by e-mail.

Reporting periods

From 2016, the reporting period follows the calendar month and should be made at the latest by the 15th from January onwards.
