With respect to its scope, the new WEEE Dir­ect­ive dis­tin­guishes between two main peri­ods:

i. a trans­ition­al peri­od (from 13 August 2012 until 14 August 2018) and

ii. an ‘open-scope’ peri­od from 15 August 2018 onwards.

Because of the dif­fer­en­ti­ation between the two peri­ods, this FAQ doc­u­ment has two main sec­tions:

1. The ‘Gen­er­al FAQ’-sec­tion that deals with:

a) gen­er­al ques­tions on the new WEEE Dir­ect­ive which are val­id for both trans­ition­al and

open-scope peri­ods

and

b) ques­tions con­cern­ing the scope of the new WEEE Dir­ect­ive dur­ing the ‘trans­ition­al peri­od’

that – accord­ing to Art­icle 2(a) – is the peri­od from 13 August 2012 to 14 August 2018.

2. The ‘Open-scope’ per­i­od-sec­­tion that deals with ques­tions con­cern­ing the scope dur­ing the

peri­od start­ing on 15 August 2018.
