Joint position paper - Comments on the proposed BEMPs for Electrical and Electronic Equipment

Joint position paper - Comments on the proposed BEMPs for Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management tool for companies and other organisations to evaluate, report and improve their environmental performance. To this end the JRC identifies, evaluates and documents best environmental management practices (BEMPs) for different sectors in close co-operation with the stakeholders concerned.

In view of the final drafting stage of the BEMPs on EEE manufacturing sector, which will feed the Sectoral Reference Documents, we would like to highlight some issues and remarks on the process and content of the proposed BEMPs following up the last stakeholder meeting.

We would like to stress that the very nature of the Sectoral Reference Documents on best environmental management practices should be process oriented, inspirational and not covered by current or emerging regulation. In this light, please find below specific comments related to individual proposed BEMPs.
