The 2012 Peru WEEE decree was modelled on the EU WEEE Directive and requires producers of 10 WEEE categories[1] to design management plans to ensure environmentally sound management of WEEE and to submit these to the relevant competent authority (Ministry of Industry or Ministry of Transport and Communications). Upon approval, producers have up to six months to implement their plans and must report annually on progress.

Management plans for producers of IT and telecommunications and consumer equipment (categories 3 and 4 respectively) were required within 12 months of the  adoption of the decree and over 30 WEEE management plans are now in operation. This includes several collective compliance schemes, which producers may join in order to meet their legal obligations. A model well established in Europe.

The 2015 resolution requires producers of equipment in WEEE categories 1 and 2 and 5-10 to submit their WEEE management plans within 12 months of adoption. It also requires producers of equipment in categories 3 and 4 to submit revised management plans within six months that incorporate collection targets of at least 4% in year 1, rising to 16% in year 5. Producers of equipment in other categories may use a discretionary percentage target. Baseline collection targets are based on the average annual weight of equipment manufactured and imported in the last three years.

With reporting deadlines and plan submissions due shortly, companies should ensure that they have a robust management system in place to monitor the weight of equipment they place on the market in Peru and elsewhere and the performance of their WEEE management plans.
