What is the WEEE II Directive?

WEEE II certification proves that a company is compliant with the EU’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE II and WEEE II II) regulations. The WEEE II directive regulates how products are managed at the end of their lifecycle and encourages recycling and reuse in accordance with EU Directive 2012/19/EC.

Manufacturers are required to establish processes and systems to ensure the safe and effective collection and recovery of most electrical and electronic waste. The legislation covers everything from household appliances, to IT equipment and medical devices.

Why is WEEE II certification important?

There are many benefits to ensuring a product is WEEE II certified, while the consequences of non-compliance can be damaging:

  • WEEE II certification is mandatory for a wide range of electronic appliances
  • Non-compliance could result in your products being barred from the European market
  • Enhances a brand’s reputation as environmentally responsible
  • Avoids pollution of the natural environment and resultant fines
