The WEEE Regulations aim to:
The regulations have significant implications for importers, producers, retailers and users of EEE, and for those who treat and recover the WEEE.
Locally importers of EEE need to fill in addition to the customs declaration form (CUS 100) an EEE declaration form, which declares how much EEE, is being imported into Gibraltar (see Schedule 2). This form will subsequently allow officials to determine the level of recovery and reuse of EEE in Gibraltar.
Please note that it is obligatory to fill in this form accurately. It is a criminal offence to include information which is false in a material particular.
Copies of the form can be downloaded on www.gibraltar.gov.gi/environment/environment
Forms must be handed in, in duplicate.
Retailers and Users of EEE need to ensure that such items are disposed of correctly and are taken to the temporary WEEE park at Europa Advance Battery, Europa Advance Road.
ELECTRIC AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT ITEMS CAN NO LONGER BE DISPOSED OF WITH HOUSEHOLD REFUSE.
When supplying a new product, distributors shall be responsible for ensuring that such waste can be returned to the distributor free of charge on a "like for like" or offer an alternative free service.
