REPIC is pleased to announce that its recently appointed Executive Chairman, Abs Bokhari, has also been named a Director of WEEE Europe AG.

Mr Bokhari has recently made the transition from Non-Executive to Executive Chairman of REPIC and through his new appointment as a Director of Supervisory Board, WEEE Europe AG, will continue to add value to producers by offering an international approach to WEEE, packaging and battery compliance.

Abs brings a wealth of experience from his thirty years in his previous role at HAIER Europe, covering the UK, Eire and MEAA regions, to both his new roles. In his previous tenure, Abs served as General Counsel and Chairman of Hoover Ltd., where he played a pivotal role in strategic, development and governance matters. 

His extensive background in the producer sector gives Abs a unique insight that ensures REPIC maintains its position as the leading UK scheme owned by producers. He will be supporting REPIC with a multiplicity of stakeholders in uncovering and driving sustainable solutions to meet the complex, evolving compliance requirements; ensuring a balanced approach that aligns the interests of both the producer sector and the wider WEEE industry.

As Director of WEEE Europe AG, Abs will join the team in developing a Pan-European strategy and supporting CEO, Christian Ludwig to ensure that WEEE Europe is partner of choice for national and pan-European compliance solutions. He joins senior executives from leading compliance schemes based in France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. 

Graeme Milne, Chief Executive of REPIC commented: “Abs’ transition into an Executive Chairman role at REPIC will be instrumental as we seek to leverage his substantial producer experience and comprehensive industry knowledge to develop innovative strategies to navigate the complex landscape of compliance and sustainability on behalf of our members. 

“Abs has been an integral part of the REPIC team for 12 years as Non-Executive Chairman and I’m confident that with more direct involvement on key projects and maintaining REPIC’s leadership role at WEEE Europe, we will continue to thrive and set new benchmarks in the compliance sector.”

In 2024, REPIC celebrates its 20th anniversary and commemorated this significant milestone, by recently completing a remarkable 565 mile cycle from Bury to Brussels, which saw 27 employees, partners and community members join together on a remarkable nine day journey to the home of the WEEE Directive.
