WEEE registers in the EU

The WEEE Directive has been implemented all over the EU, but with national differences.

Therefore, it is not certain that equipment covered in Denmark is covered by producer responsibility in another EU Member State. Similarly, rules for equipment under the duty to register may vary.


Only electrical equipment produced or imported into Denmark and placed on the market in Denmark is covered by producer responsibility and must be registered here. Equipment exported elsewhere in the EU must be registered in the country of destination and NOT in the Danish register.

For production and import of equipment destined for export the producer or the importer must contact the relevant country for further information on producer responsibility, registration etc.

European exchange of experience

Denmark participates in the European WEEE Registers Network (EWRN). The purpose of this network is to exchange experience across borders in view of making WEEE rules as smooth and uniform for producers and importers as possible.

The purpose of the network is:

  • To exchange information and experience between the members.
  • To strive for a harmonisation within the law enforcement.
  • To develop common definitions and understandings (e.g. standard-definitions of type of equipment).
  • To work on principles for cooperation regarding cross-border-cases.
