Guidance document – issues of harmonization (Jan. 2015)

The Guidance document – issues of harmonization shall provide help for:
  1. 'reporters' - who are on the way to create a report, it may be seen as content oriented information supporting the 'user manual – reporter level',

  2. 'controllers' - who have to check reports, assisting them with 'lessons learned' on possible mistakes done in other reports.

The Guidance document sums up some principle questions discussed in the WF-RepTool expert group and lists quite some issues of harmonization (same order as in the 'user manual – reporter level'), which should be considered to create a correct report. It is based on a cross-check of WF-RepTool reports created by the treatment partners of the WEEE systems of the WF-RepTool expert group members done in summer 2014. It shall be seen as a working document for an 'ongoing update'. It may be updated with new findings and if new questions are coming up in the future.
If you have any questions or remarks, please use the 'Contact us' option and let us know.


What's new with model 2 (Jan. 2014)

Core elements of 'new' calculation model = 'calculation model 2' = 'model 2' provided with the update version 4.0 (installed end of 2013) are a more stricter definition of 'recycling' [and with this the introduction of the term 'other material recovery' (OMR)] and adding preparing for re-use of whole appliances to total results [see included in recycling & recovery targets from period 2 of the WEEE Dir. 2012 (i.e. from Aug. 2015)].
For more information on changes done please see the document 'What's new with model 2' and a comparison of the 'old' and 'new' WF-RepTool model classification in 'WF-classification 2013-final - model 1&2.xls'.
(Nov. 2015) Recommendation to change to 'model 2’.
