New regulations causing confusion for companies sending EEE to India

9 August 2012

We asked Phil Conran of 360 Environmental whether he can shed any light on the situation.
 
“The regulations are based, it would seem, on similar principles to WEEE Regulations elsewhere in the world. One would therefore assume that for companies based in India who manufacture or import electrical products, there will be a need for some registration and compliance process.
 
“Interestingly, a business calling itself WEEEIndia and operating using the UK Compliance Scheme WeeeCo's phone number and email address is now contacting companies registered as producers under the UK WEEE Regulations and who are presumably exporting to India, telling them that they need to register under these new Regulations. It suggests that they must be registered within 3 months and that WEEEIndia can provide compliance services.
 
“At this stage, we are unaware that any company outside India needs to register as a producer. If anyone has any information on this, we would be extremely interested to
hear from you.”
 
We will keep you posted of any further information or developments.
