Valpak help ASOS with their International and Data Compliance
ASOS.com is a global online fashion and beauty retailer, Since it was founded in 2000, ASOS.com has grown exponentially, and through dedication and continued development has seen the number of active customers continually grow.
ASOS.com is a company experiencing rapid growth and expansion and has therefore become obligated under an increasing volume of legislation, including the Packaging Waste, WEEE and Waste Batteries legislation both in the UK, the EU and worldwide. With operations in so many countries, ASOS.com faced a wide variety of compliance obligations and data requirements.
With each country implementing producer responsibility regulations differently, ASOS.com turned to Valpak’s International Compliance team, who were able to assist them with establishing their obligations across all markets through an Obligation Assessment. Once this research was completed, Valpak were able to register the company with compliance schemes where necessary and help ASOS.com offset their overseas obligations for waste compliance.
Once obligations were established across Europe, ASOS. com realised that outsourcing the data collection and submission to a third party would be the most cost effective solution. With many new product lines being introduced each week and an average monthly sales data growing year on year, ASOS.com would have to dedicate a large amount of in house resource to analysing a full year’s data.
Outsourcing the administrative burden of international compliance has allowed ASOS to have confidence in their compliance overseas as they expand and develop. Obligated to make almost 200 submissions across multiple territories every year, using Valpak International Data Solutions has been crucial to ensuring accurate and timely data submissions and compliance. The service from Valpak ensures that ASOS.com is fully compliant with the Packaging Waste, WEEE and Waste Batteries legislation in the UK and other European countries.
Regular communication with experienced and knowledgeable staff; time and resource savings; increased accuracy of submissions and the removal of administrative burdens.
