Best Practices Report

Given the increasing amounts of e-waste, the European Union (EU) enacted the first WEEE Directive[1] in 2003. This regulation was recast in 2012 and is the current base of e-waste management in the EU[2]. The WEEE Directive does not apply directly in the Member States (MS), but the MS transpose the regulation into their national legislation based on the principles laid out in the WEEE Directive.

This document gives an overview and insights into the principles of e-waste management stipulated in the WEEE Directive and shows examples of how these principles are implemented and practiced in EU member states (MS).
