The waste accumulated due to disposal of electronic and electrical devices has been increasing over the years, deteriorating the environment by and large. Besides, the waste from such devices may contain hazardous substances as well. Which is why the European board has come up with the WEEE regulation law. WEEE or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment has to be dealt at your end as a manufacturer and importer of such goods.
In fact, WEEE is associated with RoHS (another very important law for environment preservation). Whilst RoHS handles the production of goods, WEEE manages the waste produced.
That said, without a doubt, obtaining a WEEE compliance certificate isn’t a simple task. WEEE approach is carried out on the outlines of the EPR (extended producer responsibility) principle. Clearly, it isn’t just an elaborate procedure to get the WEEE compliance certificate, it’s equally tricky as well. And this is where Enviropass WEEE compliance services come to picture.

That much established, you might be wondering why is it so important to follow WEEE compliance. If yes, the pointers below will offer all the answers. Have a look!
- Whilst you might consider that your industry does not produce so much electrical waste, but when combined with all the other industries worldwide, the amount of electrical waste dumped precariously is huge. It harms the environment in worse ways than you can even imagine.
- It’s very hard to segregate one material from the other after the waste is dumped. And without proper segregation, it’s very difficult to recycle the waste properly.
- When a lot of electrical waste is dumped, a lot of it is illegally exported and none of it is recycled.
So, quite clearly, unmonitored and unregulated electrical waste is a global threat. And, hence, the government makes it mandatory for all manufacturers and importers of electrical devices to follow the WEEE regulation and law.
