Following the publication of the Recast WEEE Directive DG Environment has now produced its first draft Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. The FAQ document is intended to help a range of stakeholders to interpret the provisions of the new WEEE Directive in order to ensure compliance with the Directive’s requirements. The FAQs, which comprise a ‘living’ document and are subject to change, are not legally binding and interpretation is down to the courts. The draft can be found at:

Any comments can be submitted to until 30 August 2013 and any comments will then be considered as input for the preparation of a consolidated version of the FAQ document
