This guidance helps organisations planning to submit a proposal to manage a WEEE Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS) Balancing System (PBS). You can propose a methodology and an organisation to administer it by 1 March 2019. Email your proposal to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs at WEEE@defra.gov.uk.
An amendment to the 2013 WEEE Regulations on 1 Jan 2019 makes membership of the PCS Balancing System (PBS) mandatory. The Secretary of State has the power to approve the PBS. Once approved, the PBS will be reviewed by 1 January 2022, and within each 3 years after.
