Waste electrical and electronic equipment reform consultation: business and regulatory impact assessment - partial

Partial business and regulatory impact assessment (BRIA) for the consultation on reforming the UK producer responsibility system for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

10.0 Enforcement, Sanctions and Monitoring

110. An enforcement framework is already in place under the WEEE regulations, with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Office for Producer Standards and Safety both playing a regulatory role. Criminal penalties are provided for by the WEEE regulations and civil sanctions can be imposed by SEPA for these offences under the Environmental Regulation (Enforcement Measures) (Scotland) Order 2015 to ensure a flexible suite of enforcement measures.

111. Changes to the regulatory landscape required by WEEE EPR will be kept under review and any further details will be provided in more detail in the final BRIA.
