The WEEE Scheme Forum (WSF) acts on behalf of 34 waste producer responsibility organisations and within the UK’s WEEE policy regulations.

It plays the important role of enabling WEEE compliance schemes to collectively feedback to government and industry on a range of issues that affect producers and recyclers.

As a key member, the forum provides an opportunity for B2B Compliance to discuss and respond to issues that affect members, ultimately helping them to comply with the WEEE regulations correctly and efficiently.

We are pleased to announce that Lucy Drake-Lee, Scheme Manager of B2B Compliance, has been selected to chair the Scoping Panel of the WEEE Scheme Forum (WSF). This panel is an industry working group that was set up to discuss items that are particularly tricky to scope, for example when the B2B/B2C classification is not obvious.

Confirmed at the highest level

The Scoping Panel will come to their own conclusion on specific products or product groups, and a list of these decisions will be presented to the Environment Agency in quarterly scoping meetings in order to have the categorisation confirmed. In this way members can rest assured that scoping decisions on their products are confirmed at the highest level to ensure they are compliant.

Lucy commented “Chairing the Scoping Panel working group of the WEEE Scheme Forum is a fantastic opportunity for B2B Compliance to be at the forefront of tricky scoping decisions, helping us to ensure consistency across producers and schemes by gaining explicit confirmation from the Environment Agency.”

“The complex world of new technology continues to bring us examples of products that do not obviously fit within a particular scoping category, our members can be assured that we are best placed to ensure we get a definitive decision on how to report them.”

If you have any products that are proving tricky to scope, or you are unsure why they are reported into an existing category, please contact us for assistance.
