Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE): Consulting and analysis of legal obligations
The legal requirements for e-waste place a wide range of demands on producers and distributors of electrical and electronic products. 1cc analyzes national and regional legislation for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and supports companies in the implementation of their obligations. In addition, we support you in setting up an optimum compliance solution that caters to your specific framework conditions.
- Based on a legal assessment, we clarify which concrete legal obligations for e-waste apply to your products and sales models. We provide recommendations as to how the obligations can be fulfilled in light of your respective business strategy. In this connection, we point out any existing scope for interpretation and advise you on potential alternatives.
- We support you in setting up a compliance solution customized to meet the needs of your business or we analyze your existing solution. We reveal risks and potential weak spots and identify optimization potential. In doing so, we also identify cost saving potential, gaps in existing compliance solutions or cases of over-compliance.
- An important aspect of the new WEEE regulations across Europe is the requirement to appoint an Authorized Representative (AR) in each EU country where producers and distance sellers from abroad would like to bring their products on the market. The AR is responsible to fulfil all or parts of producer obligations. We support you in setting up an appropriate solution in the required timeframe.
As the legal requirements and your business setup may differ from country to country, 1cc has developed a set of options to implement Authorized Representative obligations across Europe. Depending on your company structure and current distribution channel, we identify an appropriate solution for each country and assist you in all administrative procedures.
