Background to WEEE compliance
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive imposes several obligations upon producers of electrical and electronic equipment.
Atos, as a producer of WEEE, noteably in the area of ticketing equipment, maintains legal compliance, and the following text outlines our approach to fulfillig these obligations.
Atos Worldline 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 Atos UK.
All Atos UK products that are subject to the WEEE Directive from August 13th 2005 are compliant with the WEEE requirements. Such products are marked with the “crossed out wheelie bin” WEEE symbol along with our Unique Producer Identification Mark (UPIM) shown below in accordance with European Standard EN 50419.
