Marks & Spencer international compliance



  • The Packaging, WEEE and Batteries Regulations differ in each country
  • Researching and understanding these differences can be time consuming and burdensome
  • Marks & Spencer faced these challenges when opening up operations in France


The Reconomy Group’s international team produced a comprehensive action plan. This plan outlined:

  • what obligations they had in France
  • data required
  • regulatory timescales for providing data submissions
  • costs of becoming compliant in France

Marks & Spencer decided to fully outsource their international compliance in France to us.


  • Marks & Spencer saved time and gained peace of mind
  • Outsourcing their international compliance in France allowed Marks & Spencer to focus on the delivery of a high quality experience to their customers in France
  • It also provided them with peace of mind that they were fully compliant with all regulations.
  • Since the time of writing this case study Marks and Spencer has now chosen to outsource their compliance to 8 countries in total.

They have provided us with excellent support, demonstrating expertise, diligence and a commercial approach to delivering a quality and value added service in a timely manner. This has considerably reduced the time previously taken to prepare the required data. We are extremely pleased to have the Reconomy Group as our compliance partner”.
