WEEE fully implemented in UK on July 1

UK Government has now set the date for WEEE implementation.
The DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) has published its timetable for the WEEE Directive, with July 1, 2007 as the key date for introduction.

Right now a Government lead consultation is going on until October 17th.

The consultation includes these key proposals:

A national distributor takeback scheme which will establish a network of collection facilities enabling consumers to return their used items for recycling or reuse;

Obligatory registration for producers through approved compliance schemes;

Authorised treatment facilities, which will process WEEE and provide evidence to producers on the amount of WEEE received for treatment;

Accredited reprocessing/recycling facilities who will provide evidence of reprocessing to producers;

An end-of-year settlement to ensure producers are able to meet their obligations via an exchange system;

A voluntary approach for producers to show the cost of handling historical WEEE.
