Sabrina's speech is about the "European WEEE Open Scope".
The so-called Open Scope, which WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU required member states to transpose by 15 August 2018, recently celebrated its first anniversary. The new way of defining and categorizing electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) brought new challenges for national authorities and producers. All EU member states are using the new definition of EEE although some apply different categories and enforcement dates. In practical terms, Open Scope brought more companies and products under the scope of the Directive and authorities needed to adjust their national registers.
Sabrina will provide an overview of national transpositions and observed practical challenges.
