Published: 17 June 2010
Policies & Issues: Environment
In view of the upcoming European Parliament Environment committee vote on the draft report of Rapporteur Karl-Heinz FLORENZ on the proposal for a recast Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), Orgalime ask for support to ensure that the following key issues for our industry are taken into account.
These aim at ensuring sustainable legislation, which will both take due account of the considerable investment made by producers for the setting up of WEEE management schemes in record time, while bringing about those adjustments needed to improve the existing legislation for the environment and for producers whether large or small.
