Are you a Producer?

Under the WEEE Regulations 2013 a Producer is defined as:

1. Any company who is established in the UK by:

  Manufacturing and placing EEE with its own brand onto the UK market

  Re-branding and placing EEE onto UK market

  Importing EEE and placing EEE onto UK market

2. Any company, who has no establishment in the UK, yet operates in any of EU countries and sells EEE onto UK market by means of distance communication directly to household or to businesses, is required to register through authorised representative for registration.

3. Any company, who is neither established in the UK nor in an EU country and sells EEE onto UK market, is required to join a Scheme for registration.

If you are still uncertain as to whether or not your company is obligated under the WEEE Regulations 2013 please call one of our technical advisors on 01494 556 565 or drop us an email to Transform@biffa.co.uk

How do I determine what type of Producer my company is?

There are two different types of EEE, two types of EEE, depending on who uses or buys that equipment. 

  B2C means EEE is intended for use by household end users.  

  B2B means EEE is intended for use by non-household end users.

Producers must declare the total weights of both types of EEE that they place on the market. In many cases, this will be straightforward.

If you have any query to identify your EEE into the correct obligation, please call one of our technical advisors on 01494 556 565 or drop us an email to Transform@biffa.co.uk

What are the obligations placed on Producers?

  All Producers must register within 28 days of first placing EEE onto the UK market

  All EEE is marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol with a date mark

  Provide information about the preparation for reuse and environmentally sound treatment upon request of a reuse or treatment facility

  Submit the data detailing the amount of EEE placed onto UK market

  Maintain records of all registration and data submission for at least 4 years

  Finance the costs of end-of-life WEEE collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE

Producers with placing more than 5 tonnes of EEE onto UK market must join a Scheme for registration.  Those producers that place 5 tonnes or less of EEE onto the UK market should register directly with the appropriate Agency or can still register through Transform if you prefer to use a scheme.
