Are you a Producer of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE)?
In the framework of the “Reglamento RAEE” (DS-MINAM 001-2012), producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment are required to design, implement and manage a WEEE management system, which can be individual or collective.
In accordance with the Article 17, in Annex I of the “Reglamento RAEE”, the producer is defined as any natural or legal person performing activities related to EEE in any of the following ways:
- Manufacturers or assemblers that sell EEE unbranded or with an own brand;
- EEE importers with their own brand;
- Importers of electrical and electronic components that assemble and sell EEE with their own brand;
- EEE distributors;
- EEE retailers.
RLG Americas, through its RLGA Group Plan, helps producers to fulfill their obligations and is responsible for answering to all legal requirements established in the Reglamento.
What is the RLGA Group Plan Peru?
The Take-Back and Regulatory Compliance System (TRCS) is implemented by RLG Peru through the RLGA Group Plan, according to what is stated in the following illustration. RLG Peru acts as a compliance unit that represents obliged producers and manages their environmental compliance. RLG Peru implements and operates the system on behalf of their members, makes the necessary arrangements with the different competent governmental authorities, manages operations and logistics for collection, and monitors the recycling which is carried out in accordance with the highest technical standards.
A general scheme of the different stages of the RLGA Group Plan in Peru is presented in the following illustration.
The RLGA Group Plan is responsible for collecting WEEE of all types of end consumers, e.g. private companies, public institutions and households. It also manages the member companies’ own generation.
Once at the WEEE recycler, RLG Peru ensures, through detailed and continuous audits, recycling processes that meet the technical standards required by all current regulations and the member companies.
Using IT systems developed specifically for reverse logistics and collection systems, RLG Peru provides full traceability of the material collected, from the delivery point until the material has again become a commodity.
