COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/290

of 19 February 2019

establishing the format for registration and reporting of producers of electrical and electronic equipment to the register

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2012/19/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2012 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) (1), and in particular Article 16(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

A harmonised data structure and format for the registration and reporting of producers of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) for all Member States will reduce the administrative burden for producers operating at Union level or at the level of several Member States.

(2)

To harmonise the practices applied by the Member States for registration and reporting, the format for registration and reporting should be used by all producers, including producers supplying EEE by means of distance communication or, where appointed, by authorised representatives, and by all registers drawn up in the Member States pursuant to Article 16(1) of Directive 2012/19/EU.

(3)

The format for registration and reporting should set out the key information elements to be requested pursuant to Article 16(2) and Annex X of Directive 2012/19/EU for the registration and reporting by producers or, where appointed, by authorised representatives. It should also allow for limited additional information elements to be requested by the Member State where the producer is registered and reports to. To avoid additional administrative burden, such additional information requirements should only relate to entries previously identified as such in the format itself.

(4)

While Part B.5 of Annex X to Directive 2012/19/EU also requires each producer or, where appointed, each authorised representative to report on WEEE separately collected, recycled (including prepared for re-use), recovered and disposed of within the Member State or shipped within or outside the Union, the corresponding information to be reported to the Commission is collected in the Member States from different sources. In this respect, harmonisation of the reporting formats would increase the administrative burden for producers, while at the same time not be necessary with regard to the objective of the current Implementing Regulation.

(5)

The provisions of this Regulation should apply from a date that allows for the necessary practical arrangements to be made for registers and for the producers or their authorised representatives, and should start from the beginning of a calendar year.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 39 of Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and Council (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

2.   Member States shall require the key information elements identified as such in the formats set out in Annex I.

Member States may require additional information elements identified as such in the formats set out in Annex I.

Article 2

Format for reporting to the register of a Member State on data related to EEE placed on its market
