Welcome to the WEEE Directory!

The WEEE Directory provides a compilation of existing databases of the actors involved in the WEEE value chain available in public sources. The WEEE Forum maintains and updates this unique library.

The WEEE Directory is one of the outcomes of the CWIT project. The CWIT – Countering WEEE Illegal Trade – project was funded by the EU under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development and was undertaken by INTERPOL, United Nations University (UNU), United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute, the WEEE Forum, the Cross Border Research Association, Zanasi & Partners and Compliance and Risks. 

Please note that this is a work in progress and should not be seen as a definitive list! Latest update of the information: September 2023.

If you would like to have information on resources such as studies, reports, guidelines and initiatives regarding e-waste, its dynamics and related activities, we encourage you to visit the  LibraWEEE of the WEEE Forum.

The WEEE Forum is the world’s largest multi-national centre of competence as regards operational know-how concerning the management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (or ‘WEEE’, for short). It is a not-for-profit association of over 50 WEEE producer responsibility organisations across the world and was founded in April 2002.
