Changes coming to WEEE System

The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has released their findings from a consultation on the proposed changes to the WEEE System. The stakeholders have backed plans for changes to the systems but BIS will release a formal response in September.

The responses do not determine which option the government will forward with. The BIS’ formal response will indicate how the new regulations will look like.
