Consultation on WEEE Compliance Fee Methodology 2017

Closed 1 Dec 2017

Opened 18 Oct 2017


Evaluation of proposals

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 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 2017.  Comments are invited on whether the Secretary of State should set a compliance fee for 2017 and if so the extent to which each of the proposals meet the published evaluation criteria.
