On 28 July 2008, the LIFE committee, an EU panel composed of representatives of the member states and of the European Commission, approved the WEEE Forum's "WEEELABEX" project proposal. WEEELABEX is a four-years, multi-stakeholder project aimed at laying down a set of European standards with respect to collection, handling, storage, recycling, preparation for re-use and dispoal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and monitoring the processing companies through audits conducted by auditors trained by the WEEELABEX Office. All WEEELABEX auditors will use the same audit process documents, apply the same set of standards and report their findings to the WEEELABEX Office, which will list the processes that have successfully undergone conformity verification.

Attached you will find all deliverables related to WEEELABEX. The WEEELABEX Office is expected to go operational on 1 April 2013 and will be based in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic.

NOTE: The standards (see below) are featured in several languages in addition to English: German, Polish, Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese.
