* What is the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive?
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive introduced in 2007, governs how manufacturers and retailers in European countries behave in regards to recycling.
The regularly-updated WEEE directive is designed to ensure that less harmful electrical waste is sent to landfill; though the regulations don’t directly affect consumers, they do ultimately make it simpler for the consumer to recycle old electrical goods. Visit the WEEE website for further information.
Portable appliance testing (commonly known as “PAT”, “PAT Inspection” or “PAT Testing”) is the name of a process in the United Kingdom by which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety.
