The WEEE compliance scheme for all lighting!
October 23, 2017 By Alex Brothwood
1 January 2019 sees the UK WEEE regulations introduce Open Scope, which means that ALL electrical and electronic equipment will have to be reported under the WEEE regulations.
Open scope will see a significant impact to the lighting industry, affecting both domestic lighting and business to business producers. Producers will be required to report product placed on the market and fund its collection, including domestic WEEE throughout the UK. Defra expect to launch a consultation in early September. With a huge impact on overall costs for producers the lighting industry needs to respond with one voice. So the LIA invite you to join us, along with key government and industry experts to find out more about open scope, the WEEE directive and how it will affect your business.
Hear keynote speaker Graeme Vickery, senior policy advisor on WEEE for Defra discuss the open scope consultation and what it means. It is also the ideal opportunity to get advice from the experts and express any concerns you may have.
Join us November 2, LIA Telford from 10am
