COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/699

of 18 April 2017

establishing a common methodology for the calculation of the weight of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on the market of each Member State and a common methodology for the calculation of the quantity of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) generated by weight in each Member State

(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 7(5) thereof,

Whereas:

 

(1)

In order to ensure uniform conditions for the calculation of the minimum annual collection rate of WEEE by the Member States in accordance with Directive 2012/19/EU, it is necessary to establish a common methodology to be used by Member States where they calculate that collection rate based on the weight of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on their respective markets, as well as a common methodology for the calculation of the total quantity of WEEE generated by weight in each Member State, to be applied when that option becomes available to Member States in accordance with Directive 2012/19/EU.

 

(2)

It is appropriate to define in this Regulation specific parameters, including the ‘weight of EEE’ and ‘WEEE generated’ to allow harmonised use of the common methodologies for the calculation of the weight of EEE placed on the market and for the calculation of the total quantity of WEEE generated.

 

(3)

To assist the application of the common methodologies for the calculation of the weight of EEE placed on the market and for the calculation of the total quantity of WEEE generated in a Member State, it is necessary that the methodologies include a calculation tool customised for each Member State.

 

(4)

Where the data to be reported by producers or their authorised representatives pursuant to Article 16 and Annex X, Part B of Directive 2012/19/EU is not available or not complete, Member States can make substantiated estimates on the quantity of EEE placed on their respective markets. In order to ensure uniform conditions for the reporting, the monitoring and the evaluation of the data, where such estimates have to be made, a common methodology should be used.

 

(5)

The common methodology for calculating substantiated estimates of the quantity of EEE placed on the market should take into consideration that the quantity of EEE placed on the market in the territory of a Member State should be accounted as the weight of EEE made available on its market, excluding any EEE that have left its territory after being placed on its market. Therefore, and in view of available statistical information, the calculation of the weight of EEE placed on the market should be based on data on domestic production of EEE in the Member State concerned as well as on data on imports of EEE into that Member State coming either from other Member States or from third countries and on exports of EEE leaving that Member State to either another Member State or a third country. Data should be obtained using Eurostat's database (Eurobase) where, in particular, domestic production of EEE is registered under the Community Production system (with PRODCOM codes). Those codes are also connected with the codes in trade statistics (the Combined Nomenclature codes). Statistics on the trade of goods measure the quantity of goods traded between Member States (intra-Union trade) and goods traded between Member States and third countries (extra-Union trade).

National data on domestic production of EEE, imports and exports is reported under...
