In Europe, packaging waste, disposed batteries and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives requires manufacturers to do correct disposal and recycling of their waste products. To comply with these directives on waste, companies must submit information on the products they bring into market to a central agency, which consolidates the data for local authorities. Firms that operate globally must account for country-specific differences in the respective directives, making compliance even more challenging.
Environmental fee payments and reporting is required in many countries for packaging, batteries and Waste on Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). These legal reporting requirements are very different from country to country. Some countries are required to report on product composition and sold tonnages, others require a reporting on multi-composition level. Usually the manufacturer or the company bringing the goods on the market in a specific country is responsible for the reporting. Fees are charged to the companies to cover the recycling cost for the goods or packaging that the end consumer discards. Such goods are marked according to the fee systems they are subject to with printed symbols like a green dot or a crossed dustbin to indicate relevancy to one or more fee systems.
