2017 Batteries and WEEE compliance seminar – now booking!

Following the success of the event last year, we are pleased to announce that our annual batteries and WEEE seminar will take place on 22 June 2017 at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham.

As previously, the seminar will cover batteries in the morning and WEEE in the afternoon, with all producers invited to stay for the whole day which includes lunch and networking opportunities.

The seminar is CPD accredited to complement your other professional training and is designed to give you the knowledge and insight you need to not only ensure your business is compliant, but to enable you to understand the implications of the regulations to their full extent.

The seminar will be interactive with workshop-based activities covering the details and nuances of the regulations, impending and potential future updates, UK collection systems, international obligations and a commercial update that explores the factors influencing the cost of your compliance.

Last year’s attendees scored the seminar an average of 4.5 out of 5 across each different section of the day and feedback we received included “Educational and informative, an extremely useful course. Overall an excellent day!” We are really proud of this success and have taken member suggestions on board to make the 2017 seminar even better than before.
