Consultation description

We want to know whether you think there should be a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliance fee set for 2018. We also want to know your thoughts on the two proposals we’ve received for how the fee should be managed in 2018.

The use of a compliance fee and how it is administered is agreed annually. Companies that don’t meet their annual collection targets can comply with the 2013 WEEE Regulations by paying the compliance fee instead.
