WEEE compliance schemes join up

Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliance schemes Repic and B2B Compliance are to work together to help their members comply with the new WEEE directive.

Both organisations will offer a business to business as well as business to consumer electrical and electronic waste service to their members.

In practice, this means that producers who producers both business to business and business to consumer products will only have to sign up with the compliance scheme that will be responsible for the majority of their waste.

The minority waste will be dealt with by the other compliance scheme.

Repic chief executive Philip Morton said: "This consolidates the position of Repic as the leading compliance scheme for consumer products and, at the same time, ensures that our members, who may have a minority of products in the B2B sector, can benefit from co-operation between both parties."

B2B Compliance represents key producers in the business to business sector especially for equipment such as medical devices, and monitoring and control products.

Repic represents 80% of the consumer products sector.
