WEEE Number – Why it is Indispensable and How ECOPV Assists You

If you are involved with electrical and electronic devices, you may come across the term “WEEE number.” But what exactly does it entail?

The WEEE number is a unique identifier associated with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive. WEEE stands for “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.” The WEEE number is crucial for the identification and traceability of electrical and electronic devices in the market. It serves as a central element to ensure that end-of-life devices are disposed of and recycled in an environmentally friendly manner. According to the ElektroG (German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act), manufacturers must label their devices with this number to document their responsibility for proper disposal. The allocation of the WEEE number is carried out by the responsible authority in Germany, the Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register (ear). Manufacturers need to register with this entity to obtain their WEEE number. For foreign companies, appointing an authorized representative is required to implement legal requirements in Germany.
