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 representing forty producer responsibility organisations across the globe. Together with our members, we are at the forefront of turning the extended producer responsibility principle into an effective electronic waste management policy approach through our combined knowledge of the technical, business and operational aspects of collection, logistics, de-pollution, processing, preparing for reuse and reporting of e-waste. Our mission is to be the world’s foremost e-waste competence centre excelling in the implementation of the circularity principle.
