The Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) has delayed its response to the WEEE consultation by a week.
The consultation closed on 21 June and a Government response was due within eight weeks.
However, a BIS spokesperson told MRW that with over 250 industry responses received, a summary and analysis would be published this week instead.
He added that the Government aims to publish a full response next month with a final impact assessment, a new draft and information on how to take forward the key issues of the consultation.
During the consultation, industry involved with waste electronics debated how to meet minimum collection targets set out by the European Commission. Industry also discussed how to address concerns that the amount producers have to pay through Producer Compliance Schemes is often much higher than the true cost of processing WEEE, as MRW reported.
