ENVIRON provides WEEE compliance for business-to-business producers in UK
Nov 03, 2006
ENVIRON has announced the establishment of a Producer Compliance Scheme - the B2BWEEE-Scheme - to enable producers of business-to-business (B2B) products to fulfil their obligations under the proposed UK WEEE Regulations.
Membership of B2BWEEE-Scheme (the Scheme) will be open to both UK producers and foreign manufacturers whose B2B products are imported and sold in the UK by distributors.
The Scheme will offer major benefits to its members in terms of service and flexibility, by offering to manage the full process of organising, collecting, treating and recycling WEEE. Members also have the option of arranging this process themselves (e.g. continuing with existing WEEE collection and recycling arrangements).
The UK WEEE Regulations will require all UK producers to join an approved Producer Compliance Scheme by 15 March 2007. Schemes can start recruiting members from the date of their approval by the Environment Agency up until the 15th March deadline. ENVIRON's Scheme should receive approval in early February which will give producers the opportunity to join well before the deadline.
To start preparing for the new regulations, interested parties can register as prospective members with ENVIRON's B2BWEEE-Scheme free of charge and without obligation.
