Non-compliance with the WEEE Directive: what’s the worst that can happen?

The risk of prosecution for potential non-compliance with the WEEE Directive is often of uppermost concern to companies. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive (WEEE) Directive aims to prevent electronic waste and promotes reuse, recovery and recycling, while improving the environmental performance of all operators in the product lifecycle. For manufacturers and distributors of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) this means designing and labeling products to facilitate recycling and reuse of components and materials; financing the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of their products and providing free take back of WEEE. The impact of Brexit on UK WEEE regulations is unlikely to be significant and UK companies should continue to ensure compliance to the current legislation.
