    WEE regulations come into force
    December
    2006 — High Wycombe (UK): By March 2007, all producers (any business
    that manufactures, imports or rebrands electrical or electronic
    equipment) will need to join an approved producer compliance scheme to
    ensure that they are able to comply with the Waste Electrical and
    Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive from 1 July 2007.

    Those
    that sell electrical and electronic equipment to consumers have a
    choice of how they meet their obligations under the directive by either
    joining the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS), which Valpak Retail
    WEEE Services has been appointed to operate, or offer in-store take
    back.However those that sell electrical and electronic equipment to
    business end users have no statutory obligation under the regulations.

    More
    information about how the WEEE Directive will affect the office
    products industry is available in the Waste Electrical and Electronic
    Equipment and the Office Products Industry document, which can be
    downloaded from the BOSS members’ area at http://www.bossfederation.co.uk

    At
    the end of January the BOSS Environment Committee is holding a meeting
    where several Producer Compliance Schemes are going to be invited to
    attend and give presentations about their offerings. They will also be
    asked a number of questions from an industry perspective and the
    findings from this will form another briefing document that will also
    be posted on the website. Members will be informed once the document
    has been produced.
