The article 15 of the WEEE Directive requires producers to provide information free of charge about preparation for re-use and treatment for each type of EEE placed on the market. The Information for Recyclers Platform (I4R) – where recyclers can access recycling information at product category level- was created to better respond to recyclers’ needs and help producers meet article 15 requirements in a practical and easy manner.

The platform allows the preparing for re-use, treatment and recycling facilities to access information about the presence and location of materials and components that need separate treatment, according to the requirements set out in Annex VII to the WEEE Directive (e.g. batteries, printed circuit boards or plastics containing brominated flame retardants), as well as information about the location of dangerous substances and mixtures in EEE.

The platform currently has five product categories:

  • large household appliances
  • small appliances,
  • cooling and freezing appliances/ temperature exchange equipment,
  • IT equipment and
  • screens.

This information is on product category level only (industry averages), and not per brand or individual products. Other Producers’ Associations are encouraged to join I4R platform and add new product categories. To do so please contact info@weee-forum.org

Find more information in the leaflet or access the platform.
