Frequently Asked Questions
What is WEEE?
What is the WEEE Fee, more commonly known as the Ecotax?
To control the generation of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, as well as to ensure its proper management.
Spanish law dictates that the responsibility for WEEE management lies in producers (whether these be manufacturers, distributors, or importers). This can be through adherence to a Collective Extended Producer Responsibility System (SCRAP) or the establishment of an individual system.
This means that consumers pay for subsequent management when they buy any product.
Are “components” included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
If the components are placed on the market separately for the manufacture and/or repair of devices, they fall outside the scope of the Royal Decree -- unless they have an independent function in and of themselves.
Are antennas and cables included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
Cables used to transfer electrical currents and electromagnetic feels also comply with the definition of EEE, provided that they are fitted with connectors, or the connection parts needed to link up with other Electrical and Electronic Equipment and are supplied individually to the end user (not forming part of another EEE, since in that case they would be considered components and therefore excluded).
Data, audio, voice, and video transmission cables (and, in general, all telecommunications cables) do not comply with the definition of EEE and, therefore, are not considered EEE.
Electrical cables supplied to installers which are intended to be permanently installed in buildings under construction as part of large-scale fixed installations are excluded from application of Royal Decree 110/2015.
Are printer cartridges considered Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEEs)?
Printer cartridges containing electrical parts and requiring electric current or electromagnetic fields to function properly fall under the WEEE Royal Decree and are therefore considered EEE.
Print cartridges consisting simply of a tank and ink, without any electrical parts, do not fall under the WEEE Royal Decree.
Are power inverters included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
An example of this type of power inverters are those used in photovoltaic installations that are responsible for transmitting electrical energy from the junction box to the grid, or the power inverters used to charge batteries and accumulators. These inverters do meet the definition of Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
However, power inverters are not included under Royal Decree when they are designed and placed on the market as a component that will be integrated into another device.
Are filament bulbs included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
This exclusion was imposed in 2002 by the “old WEEE Directive;” thus, they do not fall under the Royal Decree.
Are electric garage door motors included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
Are all medical devices included within the scope of Royal Decree 110/2015 on WEEE?
Exclusion from Royal Decree 110/2015 only applies to medical equipment (medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices) when such devices are expected to be infectious before the end of the life cycle.
Medical devices implantable in humans are also excluded.
Example of inclusion: a monitoring screen that has no contact with the patient.
Examples of exclusion: Single-use medical equipment (electrodes used to monitor the health status of a baby during birth, etc.).
Is equipment for the generation of electric current or electromagnetic fields considered to be Electrical and Electronic Equipment?
The aim is not to include a complete power plant, but simply the equipment meant for the generation of electric current or electromagnetic fields.
How are the external dimensions measured to categorise the different pieces of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE)?
EEE is classified as small if the largest dimension is less than or equal to 50 cm -- even if, for example, a flexible power cable has a length of 100 cm.
EEE is classified as large if the outer dimension is greater than 50 cm.
What kind of Electrical and Electronic Equipment are electric hot water heaters classified as?
Are means of transport for people or goods considered Electrical and Electronic Equipment?
Examples of exclusion: lorries, cars, motorcycles, trains, ships, planes, and other means
Examples of inclusion: an electric bicycle or an electric scooter that is not officially authorised.
Electric toy cars where 1 or 2 children can sit inside: This vehicle is considered, first and foremost, as a toy and it does fall under the Royal Decree.
