VERE provides lobbying for SME's regarding environmental laws and transfers the issues into the political debate
The VERE Association for the take-back and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (VERE e.V. registered association) is an international EEE respectively WEEE community for the optimal organization and management of all environmental laws arising from the obligations and consequences for manufacturers, importers and distributors of electrical and electronic equipment. The VERE Association especially cares for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), micro-enterprises and sole proprietorships and preserves its interests. Thus, VERE fills a niche in the sector of electrical and electronic devices.
At the end of a year 2022 that will be significantly shaped by the topic of “EPR”, we will join you in Berlin/Germany to look into the future of product responsibility directly in front of the Federal Chancellery, free of charge for VERE members, take-e-way and trade-e-bility customers as well as partners, authorities and associations. As the number of places is limited, please register at your earliest convenience.
As an association especially representing the interests of producers in terms of fair competition, VERE e.V. calls on the EU Commission to intervene and reject the development towards country-specific labelling and regulations that hinder the free movement of goods in the EU's internal market.
In all well-intentioned efforts to increase the protection goals of the Toys Directive, the concerns of SMEs must also be taken into account. In addition, the VERE association commented on the problem of manual signatures in the declaration of conformity.
