The WEEE Regulations (SI no. 149 of 2014) were published on 28 March 2014 and came into force on 29 March 2014. The Regulations allow Producers to show a visible WEEE recycling fee as part of the product price at the point of sale from 1 July 2014, introduce the option of appointing an authorized representative, require distance sellers to display their WEEE Producer registration number on their website and require distributors to retain records for at least two years of the amount of WEEE taken back each year. The definition of Dual Use B2C Equipment has been clarified as ‘waste from EEE likely to be used by both private households and users other than private householders, shall in any event be considered to be WEEE from private households’.
