WEEE Review

Consultations/Regulation Review

Following on from the release of the government’s Resources and Waste Strategy in December 2018, which you can read more about HERE, we can expect to see consultations on amending the WEEE and Batteries producer responsibility regimes in Summer 2021

As stated in the Resources and Waste Strategy document, the aim of these reviews is to “incentivise more sustainable product design, increase recycling and ensure alignment with the wider Extended Producer Responsibility framework.” After these reviews, government will change the current regulations as required.

Consultations were originally planned for early 2020, however, have been delayed more than once so are and now expected in Summer 2021.

What is likely to be reviewed:

  • Governance Models (Schemes, competition and Local Authority involvement)
  • Extended Producer Responsibility for WEEE
  • Reuse / second hand goods
  • Repairability / right to repair
  • Fee modulation
