Compliance with the UK WEEE Regulations
FAAC UK Ltd. is classed as a producer with respect to EEE for ‘users other than private households’ under The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013. Regulation 12 places an obligation on FAAC UK Ltd. to finance the costs of treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of waste electronic equipment (WEEE) from our customers where that WEEE:
(I) Is composed of equipment sold to our customers before 13th August 2005 and that is being replaced by products from FAAC UK Ltd. of the same type or that perform the same function.
(II) Is composed of FAAC UK Ltd. equipment purchased by our customers after 13th August 2005.
Where FAAC UK Ltd. is responsible for WEEE under scenarios (I) or (II) above, it is the responsibility of the customer to deliver the WEEE in question to FAAC’s Basingstoke office, after which point we will accept any further treatment or recycling costs.
To arrange a return of WEEE:
- Please contact FAAC UK Ltd. to allow us to ensure that the correct procedures can be applied.
- Include contact information and any other details you consider relevant.
For clarity, where customers wish to dispose of WEEE that is:
- composed of equipment purchased before 13th August 2005 but that is not being replaced by equipment of the same type or that performs the same function then the customer retains responsibility for disposal under The Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991.
- composed of equipment purchased after 13th August 2005, then the original producer of the equipment retains responsibility for financing the costs of the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal – subject to the proviso that this responsibility has not been passed on to the customer through any contractual terms of the original purchase contract.
