The current WEEE Directive is reviewed as regards its environmental and economic effectiveness. It is concluded that it is a sufficiently flexible platform to start transposition into national laws stakeholders will still have to agree on many items. This concerns both environmental aspects as developing proper definitions, green performance measurement and secondary material issues as well as systems organization and efficiency items as economy of scale, balancing cost and effects of treatments and developing tailor-made strategies. In each of these categories examples are given how this could work out in practice.
