Dr Brüning Engineering and Umweltbundesamt, the consultancies commissioned by the European Commission to undertake a study into quality standards for the treatment of WEEE, have been engaging with stakeholders in Greece, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Next in line are workshops in Spain, Sweden and Czechia. The study will assist the European Commission in a possible preparation of an Implementing Act laying down minimum quality standards for treatment of WEEE in the EU, or any other policy option, and assist in the preparation of a Delegated Act laying down the criteria for the assessment of equivalent conditions for the treatment of WEEE outside the EU.
The WEEE Forum is strongly of the view that it is absolutely crucial that the consultants, the Member States and the European Commission acknowledge the importance of not cherry-picking requirements from EN 50625, the suite of CENELEC standards covering treatment of WEEE, but to consider EN 50625 as one integral set of standards that ought to be made legally binding. Furthermore:
The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association speaking for 36 not-for-profit e-waste producer responsibility organisations (PROs). Our mission is to help the PROs succeed operationally, take back and report e-waste efficiently and be known as members of the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre and as promoters of a circular economy. We engage in the general debate on e-waste policy matters, in Europe and globally.
