DEFRA have opened a consultation on whether there should be a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliance fee set for 2023.
This consultation contains one proposal, submitted by JTA, for a compliance fee methodology and administrator for 2023. The consultation asks respondents to advise if a compliance fee should be set by the Secretary of State, and to score the JTA proposal against Defra’s evaluation criteria, providing comments and evidence to support the scores.
This document provides a summary of the survey, a link to it, the key features of the JTA’s proposal and the reasons why JTA consider it as a good methodology for the 2023 compliance year. The aim of this document is to allow JTA trade associations and their producer members who wish to confirm support of the JTA’s proposal, to respond to Defra’s online survey. Members are requested to respond to this consultation, to support the setting of a compliance fee for 2023 and the JTA’s proposal, by 13 November 2023.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please send these to Neil.
