Detail of outcome
We evaluated the 3 WEEE compliance fee proposals received against the published evaluation criteria, and considered the views gathered from the consultation. The Secretary of State for Business has approved the Joint Trade Association’s (JTA’s) proposal, and for it to be administered by Mazars LLP.
We’ve also published the feedback sent from Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to Valpak, the 7 schemes and the JTA.
Detail of feedback received
There was strong support across all stakeholders for a WEEE compliance fee. Of 14 responses to our consultation:
- 13 supported the adoption of a compliance fee
- 1 did not say
Producers and their representative bodies strongly supported the WEEE compliance fee proposal from the Joint Trade Association (JTA). There was no clearly preferred proposal amongst the other stakeholder groups as support was shown for all proposals.
Following a consultation in 2013, we implemented the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) target and compliance fee system. In July 2015, we invited stakeholders to submit proposals for how the compliance fee should work. We are now publishing these proposals and asking for views.
We particularly want views from:
- approved, authorised treatment facilities (AATFs)
- producer compliance schemes (PCSs)
- local authorities
- waste management companies
- re-use sector
