Call for EU wide uniform conditions

Call for EU wide uniform conditions

December 16, 2019

The WEEE Forum and other signatories published a position paper calling for EU wide uniform WEEE treatment standards in strict accordance with the European standards.

The European Commission is considering the preparation of possible Implementing Acts laying down minimum quality standards for treatment of Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE). The signatories of the position paper are strongly of the view that it is absolutely crucial to do so in strict accordance with the European standards for WEEE.

The position paper says that “the standards currently put pressure on the “legally regulated market”, i.e. the operators that operate legally and in full compliance with the law, because they are most visible to the authorities. Unfortunately, this creates an unlevelled playing field for the market. Unless the standards requirements are applied uniformly by all actors handling and treating WEEE, the market will remain distorted and the protection of the environment is at serious risk to be compromised.”

It goes on to say that to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of Article 8.5 of Directive 2012/19/EU on WEEE the signatories are calling on the EU Commission “to adopt Implementing Acts laying down minimum quality WEEE treatment standards in strict accordance with the European standards for WEEE”.

The WEEE Forum and signatories write that the EU should promote these European standards for WEEE at international level with its trading partners to ensure a global level playing field.
