WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive) Certification

European Commission LogoThe WEEE Directive is the European Community directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) which, together with the RoHS Directive became European Law in February 2003, setting collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods. The directive is based on producer responsibility and the polluter pays principle as enshrined in the Treaty.

The producers of equipment used by private households are responsible for providing financing for the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally-sound disposal of WEEE deposited at collection facilities. Producers of equipment used by others than private households are financially responsible for the costs of collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally-sound disposal.

WEEE certificates for products provided by AST Bearings are available upon request.
