Every WEEE scheme can meet obligations, says BERR

The Department for Business Enterprise & Regulatory Reform (BERR) has said that it cannot speculate on whether Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) producer compliance schemes will provide WEEE evidence notes to meet their obligations by June 16.

Last week BERR issued a warning to ensure that each scheme had sufficient evidence to meet their obligations after concerns were expressed by some schemes over trading evidence.

In a statement BERR said: It would be inappropriate to speculate as to whether all schemes will get their evidence by June 16. The statement issued on May 27 made clear that the decision to base final collection obligation on the amount of evidence in the settlement centre means that every scheme can comply in every category. The environment agencies are prepared to take vigorous enforcement action against any scheme which fails to meet the obligations of their members. We expect all compliance schemes fully to discharge these obligations.
