For the first time, a coherent, continental and comprehensive set of technical requirements with respect to WEEE operations is laid down. They are referred to as standards or normative documents. The WEEELABEX Conformity verification process for each specific treatment stream is based on conformity to the following requirements:
– EN 50625 series standards and related CLC/TS 50625 series technical specifications, and
– WEEELABEX normative document on Treatment V10.0 (only articles: 4.1.1; 4.3.5; 4.6; 4.7.5; 5.9.1; A.2.1) – it should be noted that a number of crucial WEEELABEX requirements remain in the auditing scheme, as they do not appear in the CENELEC norms – these are referred as ‘’Extra requirements’’.
The detailed list of applicable standards or normative documents for each WEEE treatment stream is defined in clause 1.1 of the WEEELABEX document
Availability of standards and normative documents:
The EN 50625 series standards and related CLC/TS 50625 series technical specifications are available in several languages. They are provided by national CENELEC members (most often by national standardization institutes).
