Countering WEEE Illegal Trade

As a member of the WEEE Forum, REPIC’s involvement in the CWIT project allowed it to better understand how to account for the ‘parallel flows’ and what measures are most effective in countering illegal or sub-standard operations.

The WEEE Forum was a partner of the CWIT project and developed The WEEE Directory, an overview of the actors involved in the WEEE value chain. The EU funded project ended in August 2015.


Aims and objectives of the CWIT project:

The Countering WEEE Illegal Trade (CWIT) project provided a set of recommendations to the European Commission and law enforcement authorities that will assist them in countering the illegal trade of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), also known as ‘e-waste’, within and from Europe.

Funded by the European Union’s Framework Program 7, this two-year security research project brought together a group of experts skilled in the fields of WEEE analysis, crime analysis, supply chain security and database management.
