WEEE legislative provisions impose on a manufacturer of electrical and electronic equipment responsible for handling the product at the end of its life cycle, for reuse, recycling and disposal of certain components. The legislation requires manufacturers of electronic equipment registration, reporting and labeling products and as is his responsibility regarding the collection and recycling of products.

WEEE directive (2002/96/EC) requires that producers of electrical and electronic equipment take responsibility for the collection, recycling and treatment of discarded products and financing thereof beginning 13.8.2005. The provisions apply equally to consumer and professional sales. The WEEE directive is a minimum directive which means that each member state is free to set stricter limits and interpret the directive differently. As a result, there are 27 different national interpretations of the WEEE directive.

The recast WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 24.7.2012, and has already entered into force. Producers of electronic and electrical products must transition to an open scope, process for harmonized registration, reporting, and producer definition, meet the requirements for authorized representative for offshore manufacturers with no importer, and meet increased recovery targets.
