WEEE and Batteries Workshops

Start date: 1 May 2024
End date: 15 May 2024
Time: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Online

This is the first round of stakeholder workshops being held by the Open Product Initiative.

They are looking to speak with anyone involved in the WEEE and batteries value chain.

They want to understand all of the steps in the value chain, what data is collected at each one and what is passed onto the next. They aim to find out where this process is challenging and what the sensitivities are around it. In addition, they would like to discuss Extended Producer Responsibility including recent developments around digital product passports (DPP) and understand any concerns around these.

The Open Product Initiative is a collaborative project between Loughborough University, Open Data Manchester and Dsposal, with support from Tech UK and Buyerdock.

The aim is to explore the development of an open standard for batteries and EEE/WEEE data building on the work already conducted to develop the Open 3P standard for packaging data.

Workshops have a limited number of participants, but there will four workshops in total.
