Legal recommendation on WEEE data collection, registry and traceability
WEEE and EEE traceability is a crucial condition for setting a sound e-waste management system. It allows not only to monitor the compliance of the stakeholders involved in the e-waste system both on national scale and from abroad, but also – from a legislative and financial perspective – to set performances’ targets and long terms effective policies.
The WEEE Directivesets recommendations to ensure EEE and WEEE flows traceability and reporting methodologies. Particularly, the establishment of a registry of EEE and WEEE flows on national scale is considered the best tool for this purpose.
