Recast EU WEEE Directive Services

Intertek offers manufacturers a single-source solution for Recast Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2012/19/EU compliance.

The recast WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 24 July 2012, and has already entered into force. Producers of electronic and electrical products must transition to an open scope, process for harmonized registration, reporting, and producer definition, meet the requirements for Authorised Representative for offshore manufacturers with no importer, and meet increased recovery targets.

The European Union’s Waste Electronics and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive places the obligation of recycling (including collection, treatment, and environmentally friendly disposal) of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) products upon manufacturers. The goal is to reduce electronic waste, protecting human health and the environment from hazardous substances. Failure to comply with the WEEE Directive places these manufacturers at risk for prosecution and inability to place their products in the EU market.
