EERA participated in the final workshop on quality standards for the treatment of WEEE in Europe, on May 15.
The outcome of the study is an approach for option 2: Laying down specific/selected additional minimum treatment requirements for WEEE in the European WEEE legislation.
Among many stakeholders in the WEEE chain, EERA is still asking for mandatory standards for all MS in EU (option 1). Bart in t Groen, convenor of Cenelec TC 111x WG 6 https://www.linkedin.com/in/bartintgroen/, held a constructive plea for mandatory standards in Europe. This was supported by many stakeholders.
