In Europe, unlike in the rest of the world, the rate of growth of volume of WEEE that is properly treated and recycled exceeds the rate of growth of the volume of WEEE that is generated. The WEEE that is collected is also treated to higher standards than in the rest of the world. That’s largely thanks to twenty years of Extended Producer Responsibility legislation across Europe. However, legislation must be redesigned to make it fit for purpose for new market realities. The WEEE Forum will contribute constructively to a thorough evaluation of WEEE legislation with a view to improving its effectiveness, efficiency, relevance and added value. This is our response to the Call for Evidence.

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.
