No great hurdles for firms in electro waste directive:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The European Parliament and Council reached an agreement during conciliation talks on October 10 on the Commission proposal to introduce mandatory collection, re-use and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment throughout the EU (in the WEEE Directive). As Clinica went to press, the initial reaction of COCIR, which represents EU manufacturers of electronic and electrical medical equipment, was that the industry will be able to live with the new requirements, but that it will follow closely development as the directive is transposed into EU national laws. The Parliament and Council have also agreed a related proposal to restrict the use of hazardous substances in new electronic equipment.
