WEEE regs

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regs.

You must comply with WEEE regs if your business manufactures, imports, rebrands, distributes or dispose of EEE, such as household appliances, IT equipment, lighting equipment and power tools.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations aim to reduce the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) once the product reaches the end of its life.  Basically the WEEE regs are trying to stop products being thrown in the bin and being sent to landfill.

The WEEE Regulations apply to finished products. Components, sub-assemblies, consumables and spares are usually exempt. However, accessories, such as headphones and connecting cables, are classed as WEEE if they do not have a function by themselves and are only used with another product.

The WEEE regulations are part of a number of regulations known as the polluter pays principle, which basically means companies producing products within this legislation should also contribute to the sound and environmental disposal of their products when they reach their end of life.

Eco-Smart Consultancy can help calculate your obligation returns, making sure you have correct categorisation of WEEE, a clear audit trail and clear indication of methodology.

• Calculation of Obligations, establishing procedures and IT systems, and training for future calculation.
