Improving Registration of Producers in the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Published: 26 April 2010

Policies & Issues: Environment

In the context of the ongoing recast of Directive 2002/96/EC on WEEE, regulators are currently discussing how to improve the requirements of the Directive regarding registration of producers (article 16).

Orgalime believes that shaping WEEE registration in the right way can significantly contribute to cutting unnecessary administrative burden and costs of the Directive and thereby improve the Directive in terms of Better Regulation.
