Waste electrical and electronic equipment reform consultation: equalities impact assessment

Equality impact assessment (EQIA) to support the consultation on reforming the UK producer responsibility system for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Summary of aims and desired outcomes of the Policy

The Scottish Government, together with the UK and Welsh Governments and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland (DAERA), intend to reform the current producer responsibility (PR) for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

This reform will make it easier for people to dispose responsibly of WEEE and ensure that producers of these products take full responsibility for their responsible management at end of life.
