WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - is a set of European regulations designed to prevent the disposal of electronic waste and encourage the recovery and recycling of electronic equipment at end of life. The “WEEE Directive,” officially known as Directive 2002/96/EC, is also designed to improve the environmental performance of manufacturers and imposes responsibilities for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the manufacturer. WEEE and the RoHS Directive, Directive 2002/95/EC, are related in that WEEE limits E-waste and its harmful compounds from entering landfills while RoHS limits those compounds at the point of manufacture.
