Make sure your WEEE label designs are WEEE compliant:
WEEE stands for Waste from Electronics and Electronic Equipment. Products certified by WEEE labels demonstrate a higher level of environmental consciousness when it comes to managing the waste produced by electrical and electronic components and their recyclability. WEEE labels include the specific design requirements and dimensions set forth by the EU governing body, which includes an “X” over a trash receptacle.

WEEE Label Requirements
What is WEEE compliance?
WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations. The purpose of the WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC was to set targets for the collection, recovery and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment across Europe and divert volumes of waste electrical equipment from landfills.
What does WEEE mean for my company?
If your business sells EEE items directly to household end users, you will have an obligation as a WEEE distributor. A distributor must offer in-store take back or join the distributor take back scheme.
What is a WEEE label?
A WEEE label has a symbol that indicates that the product should not be discarded as unsorted waste, but must be sent to separate collection facilities for recovery and recycling. The WEEE marking must appear on any electrical and electronic equipment placed on the EU market.
