National Registers exchange information and interact to ensure a common interpretation of the WEEE-Directive in the EU. 


EWRN is a network open to all the National Registers that implement the WEEE-Directive in their Member State.  


Practical harmonisation is the most effective process of getting close to the consistency of outcome intended by the EU.

European WEEE Registers Network

EWRN is an independent network of the National Registers in charge of overseeing the national implementation of the WEEE-Directive in the respective EU Member States.

Those responsible for managing the National Registers are working together as experts regarding (W)EEE and its proper treatment – always as representatives of their National Registers.

EWRN was established in 2006 and since then more and more National Registers attend EWRN meetings and benefit from the exchange of information.
