The WEEE Order 5/2015 entered into force on 26 April 2015 and replaced WEEE Order 1037/2010 as well as Order 2264/2011 on the calculation of WEEE collection targets.
Beyond introducing the provisions required by the Recast WEEE Directive, the following other items are incorporated in Order 5/2015:
- Producers are made responsible for organising and operating B2C WEEE collection from private households
- A mandatory visible fee: Producers and distributors of B2C and B2B EEE must inform buyers of WEEE management costs separately
Besides order 5/2015 other orders are scheduled to amend or replace approval requirements for individual compliers and collective organisations, financial guarantee requirements and registration and reporting requirements under the WEEE framework.
