WEEE Forum issues paper: Equivalent conditions treatment

Directive 2012/19/EU on WEEE says that the treatment operation of WEEE may also be undertaken outside the EU provided that the shipment of WEEE is in compliance with certain EU Regulations. In addition, the Directive requires that WEEE exported out of the EU shall only count towards the fulfilment of obligations and targets if “the exporter can prove that the treatment took place in conditions that are equivalent to the requirements of this that Directive”. In that respect, the European Commission issued a draft “Commission delegated Regulation”. This issue paper by the WEEE Forum seeks to provide comments on the draft Commission delegated Regulation, pursuant to a workshop on 30 October 2014 where it was first discussed with stakeholders.
