New requirements for the management of waste electrical and electronic devices (WEEE) in Spain

| 15 May, 2015 | AT4 wireless advises to manufactures and importers of electrical and electronic equipment (EED) for meeting the new regulatory requirements generated by the publication of Royal Decree 110/2015 on waste electrical and electronic equipment.

In order to transpose the latest version of the WEEE 2012/19/CE directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, the Royal Decree 110/2015, which regulates in detail almost all phases the management of WEEE, has recently been published in Spain.

This royal decree describes the measures to improve this waste traceability and their technical treatment requirements. It also regulates different agents´ liabilities, expanding the producer and/or distributor (or importer) responsibilities; information requirements for Public Administration, Coordination among different public administrations, and inspection, surveillance and control systems.

These new requirements applicable to electric and electronics devices, such as: domestic’s devices, IT and telecommunications, lighting devices and consumer electronics, include, as a novelty, photovoltaic panels. All of them include dangerous substances, among other valuable substances, which may pollute the environment or may harmful to the health, if the devices aren´t managed or treated properly.

Therefore, new measures for improving separately waste collection and its management are included in these new requirements. The AEE recovery should be conducted from two points of view: by recovering valuable substances (i.e. silver, gold, palladium…) and removing all those substances which could damage people health (i.e. lead, cadmium, etc.)

AT4 wireless has the experience and testing capacity needed to provide an integral service to AEE manufactures and importers, both as advising on compliance with the updated normative framework to market their products in the global market, and providing the tests needed for compliance with them (RoHs Testing, EMC, Electrical Safety, Environmental, etc.)

Related with the WEEE directive, EN- 50625-1 standard, on treatment requirements for WEEE, has been published in the latest months. This normative is targeted players involved in waste treatment, carrying out manipulation, classification and waste storage.
