The Government has called for evidence on the cost of complying with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive.
The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills committed earlier this year to consulting on the prevention of excessive WEEE compliance costs.
Interested parties have until 23 July to submit evidence. The Government will then develop proposals for consultation early next year.
A report said in January that electricals producers were paying £50m more for the recovery of their products than the process actually cost.
