Advisory Committee

The government created an Advisory Committee for Reprography. The Committee provides recommendations on the terms of certain equipment uses for the equipment levy, on the amounts of the remuneration for reprography, and on the way in which the remuneration is collected or distributed and the monitoring is conducted.

The committee is made up of representatives of the right holders (Reprobel), of the equipment levy payers, of the sellers of photocopy machines and of the operator levy payers.
