The paper points out the current status of the implementation of the WEEE directive across the EU. It analyzes those aspects that are currently leading to differences and asymmetry across different stakeholders. The main differences in National approaches are addressed to provide a general overview across the EU. The main aspects that could lead to a better implementation of the WEEE directive are discussed and insights on cost models and how the basic principles of the WEEE directive were enforced are provided. It is based on the key question for setting up take-back systems for discarded electronic equipments: how to organize take-back and recycling in order to align all stakeholder interests and positions in a practical way?
