WEEE Directive and ElektroG – Did you know that? 

The WEEE Directive requires you to register all electronic equipment before market launch in the respective country, to apply for a WEEE number, to regularly report the quantity sold and to ensure that the products are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. There is no European-wide registration authority; instead you must register separately for each country and many specific features need to be taken into account. For example, electronic equipment is not always assigned to the same category of equipment in each country. In Germany the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) came into force in 2005 and was updated in 2015. The aim of the law is to increase the percentage of electrical appliances taken back in the end of their life in order to protect the environment. For this purpose the Federal Environment Agency (“Umweltbundesamt”) set up the „stiftung ear“.
