A reminder to small producers of the recent changes to the WEEE regulations, as the 2015 registration approaches in November.
As of 2014, the Environment Agency (EA) introduced a de minimis for small producers of WEEE. Producers that place less than 5 tonnes of EEE onto the market annually (small producers) were given a choice to register with a PCS (Producer Compliance Scheme) or to carry the responsibility of registration, data reporting and where necessary collection & treatment of B2B WEEE.
Small producers can register directly with the EA, or the relevant agency, for a fee of £30. Information on the type and the weight of EEE a small producer places onto the market annually is still required and must be submitted directly to the EA if the producer decides not to register with a PCS.
The solution offered by ecosurety allows small producers to retain the protection & support as a member of a WEEE Compliance Scheme. ecosurety continues to act as an agent for small producers. We offer a simple and dedicated service to assist small produces in the process of registering and reporting the required information with the EA, backed up by a team of WEEE specialists.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss your company’s obligations in more detail for the 2015 registration, which is due 15 November, please contact our technical specialists on 0845 094 2228 or email email@example.com.
