Electricals Consultations & Responses

WEEE Consultations 

In December 2018, Defra published the awaited Resources and Waste Strategy “Our Waste; Our Resources: A Strategy for England”, which contained a number of new policies. The document included commitments to review the Packaging System, the WEEE Regulations (consultation expected early 2020) and Batteries legislation (consultation expected mid-2020) as well as a number of other topics. Further information can be found on our Resources and Waste Strategy page.

Consultations provide stakeholders with the opportunity to engage, input and shape policy decisions at an early stages of policy-making. They often present several options (may or may not offer a preferred option) on which feedback is requested.


The consultation is open for response. Stakeholders are able to provide their feedback. Please see the consultation page for more details on how to send your feedback.


The consultation has closed for feedback and policy or regulatory decisions have been made and implemented.
