We aim to make compliance with the WEEE Regulations as simple and straightforward as possible for our members, and to make it proportionate. Our WEEE scheme has four membership categories for producers, as well as an option for business end-users.
A business which is, or is required to be, registered under the Value Added Tax Act 1994 qualifies for Full Membership.
WEEE producers who put up to 20 tonnes of non-hazardous EEE on the UK market in the previous calendar year may opt for Fixed or Full Membership.
If your business is not, or is not required to be, registered under the Value Added Tax Act 1994 then you can qualify for our Non-VAT Membership.
This membership category is for WEEE producers whose VAT taxable turnover does not go over the £85,000 ‘threshold’.
A producer that anticipates putting up to twenty tonnes of non-hazardous EEE on the UK market in the compliance period in question qualifies for Fixed Membership. There are three categories: five tonnes or less (Fixed5); between five tonnes and 10 tonnes (Fixed10); and between 10 tonnes and 20 tonnes (Fixed20).
 For the purposes of this condition, ‘hazardous WEEE’ is defined as display equipment, cooling appliances containing refrigerants and gas discharge lamps.
A producer who places less than 5 tonnes of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) onto the market in a compliance period qualifies for our Small Producer Membership.
Our Small Producer Membership option exists for those businesses that fall under the de minimis, allowing them to benefit from expertise, support and services provided by a producer compliance scheme for a fee that reflects their small production of EEE.
Use our flowchart to guide you through the different types of membership. Please note, however, that these apply to producers as defined in the WEEE Regulations. If you are a business end-user, but not a producer, your membership category will be ‘Non-Producer Member’.
