What Does it Mean to be WEEE Compliant?

WEEE Conformity
  • The European Union, as well as several places such as Canadian provinces and US states have enacted Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) or e-cycling regulations. 
  • The labeling of the crossed out wheelie bin is one of the requirements of Directive 2012/19/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2012 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (recast version).
  • You will also have to adhere to a Compliance Scheme in every EU member state an EEE is placed.  Furthermore, you may have to appoint Authorized Representatives.
  • Article 15, section 1 of the European WEEE directive requests producers to provide information on re-use and treatment for recycling of their products, identifying sub-assemblies as well as hazardous chemicals.
Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment
  • WEEE like regulations also apply in various States and Provinces of North America, such as: 
  • In Quebec, the WEEE rules apply to manufacturers and suppliers, according to the Regulation respecting the recovery and reclamation of products by enterprises (Q-2, r. 40.1). The Quebec Electronic Product Recycling Association (EPRA-Québec) is responsible for enforcing the regulation.
  • In Ontario, the Regulations for Recycling of Electrical and Electronic Equipment and Batteries under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA), 2016 – ERO 019-0048 is drafted towards producer's full responsibility for the waste management of its products.
