WEEE quango axed

Posted on 19th October, 2010

WAB, who were the government advisory body for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) has been axed.

This is as part of the governmental cut-backs. Business secretary, Vince Cable announced the dissolution of the board along with that of three other quangos.

The responsibility for the work previously carried out by WAB will now go to the Department for Business, Innovations and Skills (BIS).

WAB oversaw the WEEE directive, and this has raised concerns about the future of the directive.
