Since 2005, in the EU producers and vendors of electrical and electronic devices are responsible for collection and recycling of WEEE, i.e. end-of-life products. This responsibility involves duties of registration, reporting, information and labelling, legal basis being the EU WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU, the recast of the original directive of 2004.
Meanwhile, many countries outside the EU have passed similar laws for collection and recycling of electrical and electronic devices at the end-of-life stage, thus, making similar obligations like in the EU valid on a more or less global scope.
