The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was introduced into UK law in January 2007 by the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Regulations 2006.


The WEEE Directive has two aims - to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage its reuse, recovery and recycling. Businesses that comply to the directive are taking good steps to improve their environmental and economic performance.


If your business places electronic equipment onto the UK market or sells electronic or electrical equipment to consumers then it is likely that you will need to comply with the UK's WEEE Regulations. If you do need to comply, then you must register on a producer compliant scheme.
