Turkey has integrated provisions from both the EU RoHS1 (2002/95/EC) and WEEE1 (2002/96/EC) Directives further aligning Turkish law with EU environmental policy. The substance restrictions are the same six as in the EU with identical maximum permitted concentration levels in homogeneous material.
Turkey looks to minimise dangerous levels of WEEE and ensure the prevention of WEEE from the initial design stage of production. Emphasis has been placed on improving waste disposal, collection units and logistical services.
Once an upgraded system of collection has been established then the Producer can be charged with responsibility for recycling and reuse.
