Testing and Certification Services to the CE Mark

About the WEEE II Directive 2012/19/EU

WEEE II certification proves that a company is compliant with the EU’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE II and WEEE II II) regulations. The WEEE II directive regulates how products are managed at the end of their lifecycle and encourages recycling and reuse in accordance with EU Directive 2012/19/EC.

Manufacturers are required to establish processes and systems to ensure the safe and effective collection and recovery of most electrical and electronic waste. The legislation covers everything from household appliances, to IT equipment and medical devices.

Benefits to obtaining WEEE II certification include:

  • Entry into the European market
  • Enhanced brand reputation for being environmentally responsible
  • Avoid polluting the environment and resulting fines
