  WEEE Registration in  

     European Union's WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste of Electronic and Electrical Equipment requires that, the WEEE symbol must be placed on an EEE product if the product falls in one of the 10 categories and is placed onto the EU market after the 13th August 2005. Producers must provide refurbishment, treatment and reuse information for each "new" WEEE. The directive obligates member states to establish and maintain a registry of producers putting electrical and electronic equipment onto the market. So far, there does not exist a centralized European registration office. Producers must register in individual member states of the EEA.

Authority responsible for WEEE-related issues:

In Belgium, there is currently no national registration for WEEE compliance. Administrative procedures related to the environment are dealt by the three regional authorities: Belgium authorities: Wallonia - DGRNE (OWD), Flanders - OVAM and Brussels - IBGE.

Timing of implementation:

National legislation:

Producer Responsibility:

If a company has a local office in Belgium and/or local customer putting the product on the Belgian market, the local office/customer is the one to register with Recupel. However, a foreign supplier may be mandated by a Belgian importer to fulfill its take-back obligations in Belgium. A form is available on the Recupel website: http://www.recupel.be/.

National legislation obliges each importer or manufacturer that markets an electric or electronic appliance in Belgium to also take responsibility for the collection and recycling of waste electrical and electronic appliances.

This means that importers and manufacturers are required to take back old appliances at the end of their lifespan and provide for their recycling. In short, if you manufacture, import or assemble appliances, you must comply with the take-back obligation.

Recupel can handle the practical details of your take-back obligation. Simply conclude an Entry Agreement with the managing body or bodies responsible for the sector(s) in which you are active.

Companies importing or manufacturing appliances that have not concluded an Entry Agreement with Recupel must submit their own waste management plan to the relevant regional authorities: Wallonia - DGRNE (OWD), Flanders - OVAM, or Brussels - IBGE.
