This presentation follows Orgalime's reflection on 'Assessing the Interpretation of the Producer Definition under Directive 2002/96/EC (WEEE) for the Purpose of Transposition in National Laws and for the Purpose of Enforcement at National Levels' of 27 February 2004.
In the interest of making the WEEE Directive work on the grounds, we believe that member states should provide a harmonised understanding of who does what, i.e. which economic operators has to fulfil what kind of obligation under the directive. In doing so, member states will guarantee the necessary clarity and certainty to industry and ensure the practicability of the directive.
