    BIS Announce WEEE Compliance Fee


      The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has confirmed to WEEE compliance schemes that it will be introducing a compliance fee. The announcement comes ahead of the January 31st deadline for schemes to post their final WEEE evidence for the 2014 compliance period.


      The revised WEEE regulations, which came into effect from January 2014, establish a system of household WEEE collection targets for producer compliance schemes. Under the regulations there is also an option that should a scheme fail to meet its collection targets, it can pay a ‘compliance fee’ to meet the cost of its members’ obligations.

      Three proposals for how the compliance fee should be calculated were submitted in October – with BIS to announce by the end of the month which of the three options they will be adopt for the 2014 compliance period.

      Schemes will not learn how much they would be required to pay through the fee until after every scheme has submitted its final evidence.

      The three proposed methods for calculating the compliance fee have come from the online marketplace The Environment Exchange (T2E), the Joint Trades Association (JTA) and a combined submission from Dataserv, DHL, Transform, Valpak and Veolia
