WEEE

WEEE is waste electrical and electronic equipment.

The EC introduced the WEEE Directive in 2002, it is a producer responsibility directive, and all producers and distributors of electrical and electronic equipment that are affected must comply.

The objective of the directive is to promote recycling, minimise waste and stimulate the development of more environmentally friendly products for the future.

In the UK, it has been transposed into national law by Statutory Instrument 3289, The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006, as amended. It became law on 2nd January 2007.

REPIC helps producers and retailers to comply with the WEEE Regulations through our local authority and treatment partners.
