WEEE Registration deadline in FYR Macedonia remains

FYR Macedonia

November 2013

FYR Macedonia’s WEEE Law takes effect from 2014. The law enforces take-back obligations on EEE producers and requires them to pay a high environmental fee from 2015 if they fail to meet collection targets through individual or collective waste plans.

The WEEE producer registration deadline of 31 December 2013 currently remains valid, despite the delay in the adoption of implementing regulations. Implementing regulations were to be adopted by November 2013.

In September 2013 the first application to act as a compliance organisation for WEEE, was submitted by Nula Otpad (Zero Waste). Nula Otpad was issued a license to manage waste batteries in October 2012.
