The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is the European Community Directive 2012/19/EU on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) which, together with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, became European Law in February 2003. The WEEE Directive set collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods.

The Directive imposes the responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the manufacturer of such equipment. The equipment should also carry the WEEE logo (shown above) to indicate that it cannot be sent to landfill and must be disposed of correctly.

Conflict Minerals

The EU is pursuing an aggressive approach regarding the importation of Conflict Minerals stemming from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and its neighbouring regions. The voluntary movement is advising manufacturers how to better understand the exact source of the minerals used in OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) product and out sourced product and in turn how to avoid sourcing from the areas of conflict.

The EU regulation (EU) 2017/821 aims at stopping:

  • Conflict minerals and metals from being exported to the EU
  • Global and EU smelters and refiners using conflict minerals
  • The abuse of mine workers, and to support local development

The regulation requires EU companies in the supply chain to ensure they import those minerals and metals which the regulation covers from responsible sources only.
