EC Directive Mandates Waste Control

The WEEE 2002/96/EC Directive was recently mandated and requires manufacturers to implement measures to reduce and prevent electrical and electronic waste, including: registering as producers, marking electronic products, arranging for collection and recycling of materials, providing dismantling instructions, and more. On 13 August 2005 Manufacturers will become financially responsible for compliance with this Directive.
