WHAT'S NEW:

New Environment Agency Fees from 2019
Following a consultation last year, the Environment Agency has introduced new annual registration charges for EEE Producers effective from the 2019 registration. The changes increase the standard charge for Producers from £445 to £750. The reduced fee for companies with a turnover of less than £1m has been removed. Small Producers (those placing less than 5 tonnes on the market) will continue to pay £30 per annum. There will be different fees for overseas producers. The full EA charging regime can be viewed here:

WEEEComply’s Annual Membership fees will remain unchanged.

Producer compliance for the WEEE Regulations

The WEEE regulations were introduced in 2007 and cover a wide range of electrical products, from washing machines to watches, toys, televisions and almost all electrical products for use in home or business. Under the regulations businesses that place EEE on the market (either by importing or manufacturing it) must fund its collection and recycling when it becomes waste.

All producers placing EEE on the market must register and report the weight and type of equipment they supply. Producers placing more than 5 tonnes on the market must also fund the recycling of waste electrical equipment. WEEEComply can take on the legal responsibility for meeting the requirements of the regulations.

If you are unsure if you are affected by the regulations, look the Regulations pages of this website, or contact us for more information.

The Regulations

The WEEE regulations were introduced in 2007 and cover a wide range of electrical products, from washing machines to watches, toys, televisions and almost all electrical products for use in home or business. Under the regulations businesses that place EEE on the market (either by importing or manufacturing it) must fund its collection and recycling when it becomes waste.

The law requires such Producers join approved Producer Compliance Schemes who then register members with the Environment Agency, submit data on the weight of equipment placed on the market, and carry out the collection and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment on behalf of members.
