The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (2013) became law in the UK on 1 January 2014, replacing the WEEE regulations 2006. The legislation aims to divert electrical waste from landfill and places the onus on producers to be responsible for the electrical items they sell when they become waste.
Are you obligated?
If your business is the first party to place electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) on the UK market by importing, manufacturing, rebranding, or distance selling, you are considered a producer and are affected by the WEEE Regulations.
To comply, producers are required to report on the total weight of EEE placed onto the UK market throughout the year and can do this by joining a compliance scheme like Beyondly (or registering directly with the Environment Agency if placing less than 5 tonnes of WEEE onto the UK market annually).
