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

11.0 Implementation and Delivery Plan

112. It is envisaged that reforms will be phased starting potentially as early as next year with measures on online marketplaces, free collection of large domestic appliances by retailers on delivery of a new item and the introduction of a new EEE category for vapes, which are discussed in the consultation document. The start of the rollout of the household collection system is anticipated from 2026, along with the other measures sets out in the consultation document. It is anticipated that policy proposals arising from the Call for Evidence will be phased in over a longer timeframe.

113. The Scottish Government will further set out a confirmed timetable for implementation and will work closely with key stakeholders to ensure that the strategic objectives are met.
