An event dedicated to the recycling of recreational boats
The next session of the Rendez-vous du Nautisme de Lorient will be devoted to the issue of end-of-life pleasure craft (BPHU) and their recycling. The event will focus in particular on the implementation of the REP (Extended Producer Responsibility) sector, which was officially launched on 1 January 2019 and requires boating manufacturers to participate in the recycling of end-of-life boats. A zoom will also be made on the procedure for destitution of property, allowing professionals to get rid of wrecks abandoned by negligent boaters. The guest of this meeting will be Guillaume Arnauld of the Lions, in charge of these environmental and legal issues within the Federation of the Nautical Industries. For a first overview of the main issues of the EPR sector managed by APER, you can find the interview of Guillaume Arnauld of the Lions in our columns.
