Webinar for the lighting industry on 11 April

Lighting manufacturers, importers, contractors, end users and specifiers all have specific responsibilities under environmental legislation when it comes to dealing with waste – to be explored in an upcoming webinar.

There are legal duties regarding the sale of new lighting, and the storage, transport, and reporting of waste lighting,  most of which is now classified as hazardous. What is more, the legislation is changing, with new digital waste tracking due to start in 2025.

Specifically, the

  • Environmental Duty Of Care Regulations,
  • Hazardous Waste Regulations,
  • Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations,

place an array of legal duties and licensing requirements on

  • lighting producers,
  • distributors,
  • and contractors

which they must discharge if they are to be compliant with the law.

To help the lighting sector understand the requirements of the regulations and its associated guidance, Recolight – the lighting industry’s leading WEEE compliance organisation – is to hold a special webinar on the subject at 11am on Thursday 11 April 2024. It’s free and open to all.

Recolight experts – including chief executive officer Nigel Harvey and collections development manager Lyndsey Tweddle – will explore the regulatory landscape and the options available to comply, including the comprehensive services offered by Recolight.

They will share their advice and experience, giving you the knowledge you need to fully comply with the spirit and letter of the law. They will also assess forthcoming regulations, so you are prepared for the future legislative landscape.
