Consultation on WEEE Compliance Fee Methodology 2018

Closed 18 Nov 2018

Opened 15 Oct 2018


The UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 establish a system in which producers of equipment are required to finance the cost of collection, treatment, recovery and recycling of WEEE arising from private households. The WEEE Regulations establish a system of annual collection targets that are imposed on producer compliance schemes (PCSs). The Secretary of State has discretionary powers to approve a compliance fee methodology as an alternative form of compliance payable by PCSs that fail to achieve their collection target. This consultation contains two proposals from external organisations for a compliance fee methodology and administrator for 2018. Comments are invited on whether the Secretary of State should set a compliance fee for 2018 and if so the extent to which each of the proposals meet the published evaluation criteria.
