  WEEE Registration in  
United Kingdom (Great Britain)

     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:

Authority responsible for WEEE-related issues in UK is not clear yet at this moment.

On 24 May 2005, The UK DTI-Department of Trade & Industry published a Consultation Paper about the proposed fees to be charged for the registration of producers under the WEEE Regulations. According to this Consultation Paper, the registration of producers will be handled by:

  • the Environment Agency (England and Wales) (EA),

  • the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), and

  • the Northern Ireland Environment and Heritage Service (EHS), respectively.
