Questions & Answers
Regional Issues: In many EU member states municipalities or retailers sell WEEE they collect to 'non producers' which seems contrary to the principle of producer responsibility. Could you comment?  Answered on 24-Sep-11
Serbia: Does the WEEE Regulation allow for a non-Serbian company that does not import itself to register as producer and take on the responsibilities imposed on producers by the Regulation? And if so, how would it be able to handle this tax requirement?   Answered on 19-Jul-11
Bulgaria: Is the new WEEE register operational and is it possible for a non-Bulgarian company to register as a producer?  Answered on 18-Jul-11
