Which compliance services do you require?
A WEEE Compliance Scheme delivered by our team of expert WEEE specialists for all categories of electronic equipment...
To have an obligation under the WEEE Regulations you would place electrical or electronic equipment on the UK market for the first time or sell electronic equipment direct to household end users.
EEE is electrical and electronic equipment.
Your WEEE producer registration number is a number issued to you by the Environment Agency and is unique to your company. This would usually be in the format WEE/AA1111AA.
You can register as a small producer if you placed under 5 tonnes of EEE on the market in the previous compliance (calendar) year, or if this is your first year placing EEE on the market and you intend to place below 5 tonnes on the market. If registered as a small producer and you exceed the 5 tonne threshold during the year, you have 28 days to register as a full producer.
This information is required by the Environment Agency as part of your registration. Please provide the names of any brands of EEE you place on the UK market for the first time.
Household EEE is equipment which can be used in a household environment. It is all EEE except that with specific design, specification or function which determine it is for use in a non-household environment.
Direct - this means you sell obligated EEE direct to end users (which may be a business or a household)
Indirect - this means you sell obligated EEE to a distributor or retailer
Both - means you sell directly and indirectly
In all instances this could be via a shop, catalogue or website
In the UK a WEEE distributor is a company who sells EEE to household end users
If you are a WEEE distributor you may have a duty to take back WEEE from your customers or it maybe as a company yourself you generate WEEE which needs to be disposed of
It is a legal requirement under the regulations that EEE is marked with the crossed out wheeled bin and date mark. If your products do not have this on already this will need to be added, we can assist you if you have any queries about this.
Under the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) regulations, a producer is any company that is responsible for placing electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) on the UK market. This can be done either through manufacturing, importing, re-branding, or distance selling.
Every registered WEEE producer receives a unique registration number from the Environment Agency. This is in the format WEE/AA1111AA . If you do not know what this is or do not have one please leave blank.
Please provide the names of all EEE items you are the obligated producer of (ie. place on the UK market for the first time).
Please select all categories of EEE that your company places on the UK market
For assistance, please visit the link below for our guidance on the categories of EEE

A hassle-free solution for Battery Compliance, helping you to minimise harmful effects of waste batteries on the environment...
A company is obligated under the batteries regulations if they place batteries on the UK market for the first time or sell batteries to a household end user. The batteries may be portable, industrial or automotive and may be sold individually or built into a product.
Every registered batteries producer receives a unique registration number from the Environment Agency.

What is a portable battery?
A portable battery is one which sealed, weighs less than 4kg and has not been designed for any specific industrial or professional use or used to start a vehicle.
There are two different types of portable batteries registration. A large producer intends to place over 1 tonne of portable batteries on the UK market in a year, a small producer below 1 tonne.
We need to know when you first placed batteries on the UK market so we can ensure you are correctly registered.
What is an automotive battery?
An automotive battery is one intended to be used as power during automotive ignition, start or lighting. You would have an obligation if you place automotive batteries on the UK market.
This information helps ensure you are registered correctly.
What is an industrial battery?
An industrial battery is one not intended to be used for power during vehicle ignition (automotive). It may be sealed or unsealed and could be a battery designed for a specific use professionally or industrially.
A sealed battery not designed for a specific purpose or used during vehicle ignition would be declared as portable if it weighed less than 4kg. if it weighed more than 4kg it would be considered industrial.
If you need any assistance in classifying your batteries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
This information is to help us ensure you are registered correctly.
We require this information to register you with the Environment Agency.
The crossed out wheeled bin symbol must appear on all batteries and shows that they must be separately collected and treated.
This may be because as a batteries distributor you have an obligation to take batteries back from your customers, or because your company itself generates waste batteries.
Distributors who sell more than 32 kilograms a year of portable batteries to end users must accept waste portable batteries from end users without charge. If the batteries are sold within products (eg. a laptop battery) then you would not have this obligation unless you also sold portable batteries separately above the threshold weight.
