Starting on August 15, 2018, 2012/19/EU, the EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE Directive), will become applicable to all electrical and electronic products. The product classification will be reclassified from the original 10 categories to 6 categories and will need to meet the new Loop recovery (3R) requirements. 

The WEEE Directive requires products to be labelled with a crossed-out wheeled bin identification in accordance with EN 50419:2006. It also requires producers to register in their local countries where the product is listed and regularly reporting the number of products to be marketed and the quantity of electronic waste collected, recycled, recycled and discarded.
