The Assessment of the Assessment of the Scope of Directives 2002/96/EC on WEEE and 2002/95/EC on RoHS

Published: 27 October 2003

Policies & Issues: Environment

Additional interpretations based on existing Community legislation and Commission guidelines

This position completes the positions elabroated concerning the scope of the WEEE and RoHS directives which Orgalime issued earlier this year (9 July and 11 September 2003). To our mind, a set of general criteria should be established for determining what is included or not in the scope of the directive. These criteria should meet the directives provisions and be consistent with existing Community legislation and Commission guidelines.
