Members of the WEEE Scheme Forum, representing over 90% of UK Producer compliance scheme members, recently met with BIS and the Environment Agency to explore improvements that can be made within the current WEEE Regulations. The EA intimated greater flexibility to remove some of the bureaucratic detailed activity and submissions from schemes and BIS has made a number of proposals to address a number of cost concerns. While the intention is to introduce these for 2013 both bodies are conscious that new regulations, emanating from the Recast WEEE Directive, will come into force in January 2014.
