The WEEE Regulations 2013 – Open Scope

Posted on 6th June, 2018

1st January 2019 sees The WEEE Regulations 2013 introduce open scope.

This means that products formerly considered out of scope of the Regulations will be in scope and will need to be reported as EEE from this date.

This will apply to all equipment that meets the criteria of EEE unless covered by a specific exemption or exclusion as per the Regulations.  One of the major impacts this will have is household lighting equipment will now be in scope.

We are currently awaiting updated guidance from the Environment Agency and will be in touch with further information once this is available.
