• DCI/Jet Tec clear-up on the new WEEE Directive

        • DCI/Jet Tec are on a mission to clear up the confusion surrounding the new WEEE Directive for remanufactured inkjet and toner cartridges, toning up on a new set of regulations for the company and its customers.

          From January 2016, all remanufactured inkjet and toner cartridges will be classified as EEE (Electronic and Electrical Equipment) products. As a producer, DCI/Jet Tec are responsible for collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE (Waste Electronic an Electrical Equipment). As distributors, DCI/Jet Tec customers will only be responsible for offering a ‘take-back’ or recycling scheme for the end user.

          Sean Hill, Environmental Manager at DCI/Jet Tec said, “we understand that the new regulations may seem daunting, and that as a need for clarification around what our customers should be doing from 2016.”

          As a member of the scheme, DCI/Jet Tec have been issued with a PCS (Producer Compliance Scheme) registration number which their customers can request to use and all customers, whether in a shop, online or mail order must now meet the requirements.

          Customers that import EEE products will have the same obligations as a producer and will have to finance the collection and treatment of WEEE and offer a ‘take-back’ scheme. Sean adds that the Environmental Agency will allow for ‘some flexibility with everyone becoming compliant’ and any customers with concerns are asked to contact their account manager or speak to a team member.
