The PV CYCLE logo is a registered trademark and meant to help members communicate on their commitment to our high waste management and sustainability standards.

The PV CYCLE logo is valid for the year of membership and does not provide end-customers with services outside of the membership agreement.

Proof of WEEE compliance or entitlement to waste management services are provided in the membership contract and certificate.  The PV CYCLE logo used on a product or product sheet does not automatically provide for waste management nor national compliance, if the product is not correctly registered with PV CYCLE in the current year and respective country.

To benefit from our unique collection network and compliance services, companies have to meet the following criteria:

  • Registration for compliance in the current year and in the country(ies) of activity (EU)
  • Membership category including take-back and recycling (global)
  • Renewal of membership on an annual basis (global)

Rightful use of our logo

Members must communicate the scope of their PV CYCLE membership in a comprehensive, truthful and fair manner, so that their customers can benefit from the industry’s leading take-back and compliance solution. Strict control mechanisms and approval processes ensure their access to our comprehensive waste management network without that they have to pay for non-members’ waste.
