Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
This guidance is relevant if you sell electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). Examples of EEE include:
If you need to dispose of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that you produce in your business, see our WEEE guidance.
If you sell EEE to end users, you must comply with the WEEE Regulations.
If you rebrand or import EEE, you are considered a producer under the WEEE Regulations. This means you have a responsibility for the EEE you place on the market.
For more information about your obligations, see our guidance for producers of electrical and electronic equipment.
The Northern Ireland Environment Agency has published a short guide to the duty of care responsibilities including advice and information for waste producers, carriers and those accepting, storing and treating waste.
Any person intending to alter the use or management of areas of uncultivated or semi-natural land must obtain prior approval from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
