WEEE is for the prevention, reuse, recycling and recovery to reduce the disposal of waste from electrical and electronic equipment. Requirements for WEEE went into effect on August 13, 2005. Current Requirements for the Revised WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU went into effect on July 4, 2012 and Digi is compliant with this directive.
