Open Scope

Legislative Decree 49/2014 introduces, starting from August 2018, a wider scope of application (Open scope), that will significantly expand the categories of electrical and electronic products subject to the European legislation on electronic waste (WEEE). Cables, components, machinery, pumps, smart meters, boilers and automation systems are just some of the products that will fall under the new Open scope.

What are the ‘new’ producers meant to do, considering that so far they were not affected by the regulation on the management of WEEE?

 The law requires them to:

  • register with the National Register of EEE Producers
  • contribute to finance the management of electronic waste (WEEE) in accordance with legislative provisions.

How to operate in full compliance in a SIMPLE, SAFE and COST-EFFECTIVE way?

The answer is: ‘with Remedia’; the reference compliance scheme for producers of electrical and electronic equipment, partner of the major industry associations and Italian leader in the management of WEEE. In addition, Remedia is a member of WEEE Europe, to offer a complete and integrated solution throughout the European Union.
