The next meeting of the United Kingdom Cartridge Remanufacturers’ Association (UCKRA), which was set to take place on 23 April, will now take place on 30 April, due to the late unavailability of Dr. Michael Gell, with the association taking the decision to rearrange the meeting until the new date a week later.
The event, which will take place at the Novotel Coventry, will see the launch of the association’s Industry Impact Assessment, which looks at the impact of the European Recast WEEE Directive on the UK cartridge remanufacturing industry, and follows the government’s recent proposal that cartridges will come within scope of the UK WEEE Regulations from 1 January next year; potentially affecting third party remanufacturers, OEMs and clone manufacturers.
The Impact Assessment has been written by an expert in competitive strategy, ecodesign and environmental assessments, providing a unique perspective on how the remanufacturing industry may evolve under the new regulations and covering what UK remanufacturers need to do in order to become compliant. Copies of the Impact Assessment can be purchased directly from UKCRA by emailing [email protected].
Details regarding the UKCRA event and the speakers will be communicated as soon as possible.
