Updated the guidance to clarify that waste upholstered domestic seating is not covered by the WEEE regulations due to the presence of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
We have added 'If you have an item that you need help to categorise, please contact your compliance scheme or regulator for help.' We have included clearer definitions of furniture that needs electricity to work properly and fridges using ammonia. We have added new items to category 1 (stairlifts), category 3 (cards with chips, and USB memory sticks and drives), category 9 (electric vehicle charging points with monitoring or other smart features) and category 10 (electric vehicle charge points with basic charging function only). We have also added items to the list of non- EEE product examples.
