1 January 2019 sees the UK WEEE regulations introduce Open Scope, which means that ALL electrical and electronic equipment will have to be reported under the WEEE regulations.
You will be required to report product placed on the market and fund its collection, including domestic WEEE throughout the UK.
With such a huge impact on overall costs for producers the lighting industry needs to respond with one voice.
The consultation has now been published and you need to read it here.
So join us
Along with Defra and the Environment Agency to find out more about open scope, the WEEE directive and how it will affect your business.
Keynote speaker Graeme Vickery, is the senior policy advisor on WEEE for Defra and will discuss the open scope consultation and what it means in more detail.
We hope you can join us on 2 November at the LIA, Telford from 10am.
