The purpose of the establishment of the System Operator is:

- to establish a quality and sustainable system of disposal (processing and recycling) of electrical and electronic waste
- to provide legal support and free consultations for current and future System Participants
The System Operator has been established as a service that is available to its System Participants, to use its knowledge and resources to best facilitate their reporting and fulfillment of their legal obligations. Also, the role of the System Operator is to ensure payment of fees for the placed electrical and electronic equipment which are lower than what importers, manufacturers and distributors would have paid had they done it on their own, which for the participants of the system means the reduction of operating costs. Also, the System Operator takes care of the disposal of electrical and electronic waste by the System Participants.
The Articles of Association of the System Operator and the Decision on the Establishment of the System Operator clearly define the principle of not-for-profit business.
