The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has published proposals from stakeholders on how its WEEE compliance fee scheme should work.
BIS asked stakeholders in July how the WEEE scheme should work, after it was implemented following a consultation in 2013.
- approved authorised treatment facilities (AATFs)
- producer compliance schemes (PCSs)
- local authorities
- the reuse sector
One of the outcomes of the 2013 consultation was that the UK would implement a household WEEE system based on a collection target given to PCSs, along with an option to pay a compliance fee if a PCS failed to meet its target.
Now BIS is seeking views, until 15 November, on whether it should approve a compliance fee for 2015 and how well the proposals meet the published evaluation criteria.
The department has said it does not currently have a preferred methodology in relation to this consultation.
Responses will then be considered as part of the formal evaluation process of the proposed methodologies.
