Detail of outcome
We received 107 responses to this consultation. The summary of responses sets out how the government intends to take forward each of the issues on which views were sought.
We want to know what you think about plans to amend the UK’s 2013 regulations for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The changes will include:
- introducing “Open Scope” requirements, which extends the regulations to all electrical and electronic equipment unless specifically exempt
- making membership to the Producer Balancing Scheme compulsory
- changing how producer fees are allocated in the UK
We also want to know what you think of the 2013 WEEE Regulations. Have they improved the environment at a proportionate cost to business? We will use these views to inform the Post Implementation Review next year.
