WEEE and Batteries producer fees in Italy


June 2014

A Draft Act, currently under discussion in parliament, adds environmental provisions to the ‘Stability (Budget) Law 2014’ which will permit the Government to charge fees for the costs of implementing and monitoring the WEEE and Batteries Decrees to producers.

The Draft Act specifies that these fees shall be paid into the state budget and transferred to the appropriate budget of the Ministry of Environment. The fees which are to be allocated to producers in proportion to their market share, have yet to be set.
