A call for Implementing Acts to lay down minimum quality WEEE treatment standards in strict accordance with the European standards

The European Commission is considering the preparation of possible Implementing Acts laying down minimum quality standards for treatment of Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE).

EERA and other signatories of the issue paper are strongly of the view that it is absolutely crucial to do so in strict accordance with the European standards for WEEE. The consultants that undertake the preparatory study, the Member States and the European Commission should acknowledge the importance of strictly implementing all requirements from EN 50625 and EN 50614, the suite of CENELEC standards covering the collection, transport, re-use and treatment of WEEE and avoid their watering down since they represent one integral set of standards to be applied by all actors in a harmonised way throughout Europe for improved quality waste management.
