Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime thanks the Commission for consulting stakeholders on a set of policy options currently under consideration for the review of Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and herewith provides its contribution to the debate.

Orgalime comments are structured according to the headings and sequence of options given in DG Environment’s consultation paper. We provide comments on each of these proposed options and complement them, where we consider necessary, with proposals for alternative and/or additional options. We also include general remarks and provide underlying evidence, in so far as this exists today.
