The WEEE Forum and 29 other civil society and industry groups join forces in a joint statement regarding the Digital Services Act (DSA) as a vehicle to counter online free-riding.

We request policymakers to ensure the DSA holds accountable online platforms that facilitate the initiation of transactions between traders and end-users via a strong liability regime and firm obligations.

The evidence of wrongdoings and free-riding on these platforms is overwhelming. The DSA is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to ensure issue-specific EU laws cannot be bypassed.

The WEEE Forum a.i.s.b.l. is an international association representing 51 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.
