Details

This document helps organisations that are considering submitting a proposal for a compliance fee methodology, in relation to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations.

The 2013 WEEE regulations establish a system of household WEEE collection targets for producer compliance schemes (PCS). Where a PCS has failed to achieve its collection targets, the PCS may choose to pay a compliance fee in order to meet the cost of its financing obligations.

Government approves one compliance fee methodology and the administrator to run it for one compliance year only. You can propose a methodology and an organisation to administer it by 30 September. Email your proposal to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs at weee@defra.gsi.gov.uk.
