The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Advisory Body (WAB) has now set up a work implementation plan that will assess the WEEE system.
It comes at a time when the WEEE system will be approaching its first anniversary.
The WAB was set up last December to provide advice to the Government for the operation of the WEEE Regulations. The group consists of 13 individuals considered to be WEEE experts from various industry sectors. The membership consists of the following:
* WAB Chairman Peter Calliafas
* Joy Boyce, head of corporate affairs, Fujitsu Services
* Julie-Ann Adams of Adams Consultancy Services
* Phil Conran, general manager recycling, Biffa
* Jonathan Gorman, regulatory policy manager, Tesco
* Gary Griffiths, environmental and quality systems manager, RDC
* John Holbrow, non-executive chairman, Pollution Monitors
* Leigh Holloway, environmental consultant, Eco3
* Terry Maguire, chairman and managing director, Computer Remarketing Services
* Kirstie McIntyre, environmental takeback compliance manager, Hewlett Packard
* John Morrell, environmental consultant, Oakdene Hollins
* Philip Morton, chief executive officer, Repic
* Mark Shelton, waste promotions manager, Donarbon Waste Management
The group will be spilt into two subgroups and will asses the UK WEEE system, individual producer responsibility, re-use, business-to-business WEEE and the European Commission review. It will report to the Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform with its recommendations.
