What is WEEE trying to Achieve 22/12/2007 What is WEEE trying to Achieve 22/12/2007

Who is responsible Producers and Importers (P/Is) of electrical & electronics to the EU Who is responsible Producers and Importers (P/Is) of electrical & electronics to the EU regardless of size and market shire. Brand named products are classified, in this case, as the responsible company. Sub-assemblies by another manufacturer within a branded product are still the responsibility of the brand name. Sub-assemblies sold on the open market that usable in its own entity are classified as branded products. 22/12/2007

Who is responsible Communication and Radio manufactures have split into two groups as to Who is responsible Communication and Radio manufactures have split into two groups as to registering with a scheme; 1. Registering as the brand name. 2. Use their importers as there registering company(s) 3. In some cases it has transpired that there are multiple importers registered with a schemes to cover one single brand. 22/12/2007

Financing & Collection of WEEE • Producers/Importers will have to register with a scheme, Financing & Collection of WEEE • Producers/Importers will have to register with a scheme, Anyone suitably qualified can develop their own. • Financing will be according to market shire. • The scheme will organise collection of materials from B 2 B/B 2 C customers facilities and or recycling centres. • Reporting guidelines are only just being given by SEPA/EA. 22/12/2007

Legislative Considerations Waste Management License (Site and Carrier) Landfill Directive Battery Directive Basel Convention Legislative Considerations Waste Management License (Site and Carrier) Landfill Directive Battery Directive Basel Convention (In force for 11 years) Trans-frontier Shipment Regulations European Waste Catalogue EA/SEPA interpretation of the laws! 22/12/2007

Legislative Considerations P/Is have a Duty of Care to ensure their products are recycled Legislative Considerations P/Is have a Duty of Care to ensure their products are recycled in an environmental manner and their recycling partners have the appropriate “know how”, accreditations and waste management licences. Reuse and resale are to be encouraged. The WEEE Directive will require recyclers AATFs to have at least ISO 14001 and the “appropriate” WML. And to be an AE (Approved Exporter) when exporting any recycling materials aboard regardless of classification. 22/12/2007

Legislative Impacts The WEEE Directive interacts with other directives. If an item is not Legislative Impacts The WEEE Directive interacts with other directives. If an item is not considered fit for the original purpose it may be considered as waste! Even some materials moved across border for repair maybe classified as waste! (England & Wales differ in the interpretation of waste to Scotland. Movement of waste nationally follows the EWC classifications. Internationally the movement of waste follows the OECD Basel Convention on the trans-frontier movement of waste regulations (TFS) Materials that are “green listed” in one directive maybe hazardous waste (“amber listed”) in the other. 22/12/2007

Recycling Effectively • ISO 9001 2000 & 14001 are important. • Audit trails, environmental Recycling Effectively • ISO 9001 2000 & 14001 are important. • Audit trails, environmental and financial are just as important. • Defined process flows. • Recording of reporting of data. • EMS information so P/Is can report back WEEE information. • Experienced electronics recyclers have good working knowledge of legislation, hazards etc. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Member To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Member States must take whatever measures are needed (including economic instruments) to promote and maximise separate waste collections and prevent batteries and accumulators being thrown away as unsorted municipal refuse. They have to make arrangements enabling end-users to discard spent batteries and accumulators at collection points in their vicinity and have them taken back at no charge by the producers. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled The To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled The recycling of battery and accumulator content to produce similar products or for other purposes has to reach the following levels by 26 September 2011: • at least 65% by average weight of lead-acid batteries and accumulators, including the recycling of the lead content to the highest degree that is technically feasible; • 75% by average weight of nickel-cadmium batteries and accumulators, including the recycling of the lead content to the highest degree that is technically feasible; • at least 50% by average weight of other battery and accumulator waste. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Collection To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Collection rates of at least 25% and 45% have to be reached by 26 September 2012 and 26 September 2016 respectively. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled In To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled In principle, it must be possible to remove batteries and accumulators readily and safely. It is for Member States to ensure that manufacturers design their appliances accordingly. Member States also have to ensure that, from 26 September 2009 at the latest, batteries and accumulators that have been collected are treated and recycled using the best available techniques. Recycling must exclude energy recovery. As a minimum, treatment must include removal of all fluids and acids. Batteries and accumulators must be treated and stored (even if only temporarily) in sites with impermeable surfaces and weatherproof covering, or in suitable containers. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Treatment To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Treatment and recycling may take place outside the Member State concerned or even outside the Community, provided EU legislation on the shipment of waste is respected. The producers have to bear the cost of collecting, treating and recycling industrial, automotive and portable batteries and accumulators, as well as the costs of campaigns to inform the public of these arrangements. Small producers may be exempted from this obligation if this does not impede the proper functioning of the collection and recycling schemes. All producers of batteries and accumulators have to be registered. 22/12/2007

To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Key To ensure that a high proportion of spent batteries and accumulators are recycled Key terms • "Battery" or "accumulator": any source of electric energy generated by direct conversion of chemical energy and consisting of one or more primary battery cells (non-rechargeable) or of one or more secondary battery cells (rechargeable). • "Button cell": any small round portable battery or accumulator whose diameter is greater than its height and which is used for special purposes such as hearing aids, watches, small portable equipment and back-up power. 22/12/2007
