Last updated: 29 June 2017

If you don't comply

If you fail to comply with the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) regulations, you can be prosecuted and fined from a sheriff court.

You may sometimes get warning letters and formal cautions before a prosecution.

You can report someone who's breaking the regulations to the National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO).
