DIGITALEUROPE’s Guidance on Dimensions Data (WEEE2 Scope)

DIGITALEUROPE’s Guidance on Dimensions Data (WEEE2 Scope)

On 15 August 2018, the scope of Directive 2012/19/EU WEEE is widened to include all electrical and electronic equipment with some given exemptions.

Product categories will be limited to 6 with more products being included (‘open scope’). What is more, for reporting purposes, producers will have to categorize their products into the 6 new categories according to product dimensions.

Discussions are ongoing between the European Commission, national producer registries and Ministries in an effort to determine how best to implement categorization based on dimensions.

While we highly appreciate this work, we recognize the complexity to find a common approach. With this paper, we would like to offer guidance and provide our recommendations on how to implement the new WEEE2 scope provisions in a harmonized way.
