Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) covered by the WEEE regulations

Guidance for EEE producers on how to accurately report the weight of EEE they place on the market under the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) regulations.



EEE covered by the WEEE regulations is known as ‘in scope’.

Use this guidance to check if the product:

  • falls under the definition of EEE
  • is in one of the categories
  • is exempt or excluded

It also explains if you need to report the whole weight of the product or if there are elements of it you can deduct.
