Once approved by the Minister of Economy, the re-released draft of the ‘Technical Regulations on WEEE’ it will be submitted to Parliament for adoption which is expected in early 2014.

The latest version of the Draft upholds 2018 as the first year of mandatory compliance by producers. Changes from the original Draft include:

  • A closed scope of equipment subject to the regulation
  • The creation a public register of EEE producers and collection points by the Minister
  • The regulation no longer specifies reporting and monitoring requirements
  • The definitions now included energy recovery

The Action Plan presented in the draft ‘Resolution on Approval of the Technical Regulations on WEEE’ remains mostly unchanged.
