Conference to Assess Impact of WEEE Directive Revision

The European Commission and senior representatives from the electronics industry will give an insight into the planned revision of the EU Directive on Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) at a major industry conference in October.

Agra Informa on Oct. 1-2 will host its fourth conference on Electrical and Electronic Waste in Brussels, where the keynote speaker will be the Commission's Kurt van der Herten, the official leading the revision work.

The WEEE directive has proved a headache for both companies that have to comply and EU Member States that have to write its tenets into national law. Companies in particular find compliance with the 27 different interpretations of the directive in national law a nightmare.

Now the Commission has a chance to iron out the difficulties and harmonize the rules Europe-wide. But what will Brussels choose to do? Electrical and Electronic Waste 2008 will give you the opportunity to hear from the horse's mouth what the main features of the WEEE revision are likely to be.

With the revision of the Directive imminent, speakers from Hewlett Packard, Dell Ltd. and Philips Consumer Electronics share their experience of implementing Individual Producer Responsibility, coping with impact of the EU Directive in the global market, and managing compliance.
