The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has released a short consultation which proposes a change to the definition of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) arising from private households, also known as B2C WEEE.
This consultation proposes that WEEE which can be used by both private households (B2C) and users other than private households (B2B), known as ‘dual use’, should be classed as B2C. The attached summary document outlines the proposals, including impacts and timings.
Valpak recognise that these changes may have a significant impact on some of our B2B members, as some products would need to be classed as B2C going forwards.
