Reporting EEE that has been exported from the UK

Posted on 5th January, 2015

If you are an EEE Producer in the UK, read on.

Following a recent consultation between BIS and Industry we are writing to inform you of a change in guidance with respect to EEE that is exported outside of the UK.

If during the 2014 compliance period you have exported any EEE outside of the UK, that was previously reported as EEE placed on the UK market, then this material can be deducted from your reported EEE data.

What do you need to do now?

Please review the guidance from the EA. If you feel; that you have EEE that can be netted off against your reported figures please provide WeeeCare with the following information:

•Evidence needs to be provided that the product was exported as EEE during the same compliance period that the EEE was originally placed on the UK market.

•Proof according to the EA can be invoices from the original manufacturer, and proof of export, for example invoices showing the producer’s goods going to an export customer or a bill of lading

•Where material that you have already reported in your quarterly EEE returns has been subsequently exported then you should resubmit the quarterly return for the quarter that the material was initially placed on the market to remove any exported tonnage.

•We would need confirmation of the information to be provided to us no later than the 31st January 2015.

If you have any questions please contact your WeeeCare Account Manager.
