If you, as a company, have mattresses produced for marketing under your own name (Private Label) on the Belgian market, then you have a take-back obligation. You must then either the Valumat collective system. However, you can also mandate your supplier, if he agrees, to include the amount of mattresses he has delivered to you under your name (Private Label) in his annual declaration to Valumat.
