WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations aim to reduce the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) when it reaches the end of its life.

You must comply with the WEEE Regulations if you manufacture, import, rebrand, distribute or dispose of EEE, such as household appliances, IT equipment, lighting equipment and power tools.

This guideline explains who is affected by the WEEE Regulations and which types of equipment are covered. It outlines the key responsibilities for each type of affected business.
