Background to WEEE compliance

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive imposes several obligations upon producers of electrical and electronic equipment.

Worldline IT Services UK Limited, as a producer of WEEE, notably in the area of ticketing equipment, maintains legal compliance, and the following text outlines our approach to fulfilling these obligations.

Registration Details

Worldline IT Services UK Limited is registered with the UK Environment Agency, with Producer Registration Number: WEE/EH4475RU.

Prior to the end of 2013, our EEE was produced by Atos IT Services UK Limited which was formerly registered with the UK Environment Agency, with Producer Registration Number: WEE/HG3021VY. This registration is now dissolved.

The former Siemens Information Systems business, acquired by Atos during 2011, was formerly registered as Producer Registration Number: WEE/KB0054TQ. This registration is now dissolved.

From hereon, reference to our obligations under each registration is referred to under the name Worldline IT Services UK Limited.
