Join Us: Roundtable Discussion on WEEE and RoHS Directives Recast

In the coming months the recast of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) Directives will be a key legislative dossier for the new European Parliament Enviornment Committee and one of the main environmental priorities of the Swedish EU Presidency of the Council of Ministers.

As the legislative process begins in earnest, Fleishman-Hillard offers all interested parties the opportunity to examine the contents of the proposals with one of the key European Commission officials for this dossier, reflect on the outlook in the institutions on key elements of the proposals and build relations with other interested stakeholders.

A short presentation from our guest speaker on the proposals will be followed by an opportunity for questions and debate.

We hope you will be able to join us to discuss this legislative issue with other interested parties.

Guest Speaker

Thorsten Brunzema of the Sustainable Production and Consumption Unit, DG Environment, European Commission
