Your responsibilities

What do I need to do?

Under the European Union’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, producers who place electrical and electronic equipment on the market are required to provide for the collection and treatment of these goods when they are disposed of by the consumer.

Under the legislation, EEE producers may transfer their WEEE compliance obligations to an approved compliance scheme such as ERP.

What is a producer?

A producer of EEE is defined as any person who irrespective of selling technique used, including by means of distance communication:

  • Manufacturers and sells electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) under their own brand
  • Resells under their own brand, equipment produced by other suppliers (Note: a reseller not being regarded as the ‘producer’ if the brand of the producer appears on the equipment)
  • Imports or exports EEE on a professional basis into a Member State
