    Collection targets for WEEE compliance schemes


      From January 2014 WEEE compliance schemes will be subject to mandatory collection targets


      Under the proposed new system, it will be compulsory for all producers to be required to join a producer compliance scheme, unless they fall below the de minimis threshold of placing five tonnes or less of EEE onto the market per year.


      Each individual compliance scheme will be given a tonnage target by category of EEE placed onto the market.


      Over-collecting schemes will be required to finance the excess or retain the income, and under-collecting schemes will have to pay a ‘compliance fee’ per tonne of WEEE it has been unable to collect or face sanctions for non-compliance.
