Recolight publishes advice on classification of lighting equipment as B2B or B2C under the WEEE regulations.
The Government has updated its guidance on how lighting industry Producers should decide if products are classified as Household (B2C), or Non-Household (B2B). Recolight has published advice on how to comply with the changed requirements.
Previously, the approach to classification as B2B or B2C was largely based upon the route to market – broadly speaking, sales through retailers were B2C, and other channels were B2B. That has now changed. Instead, Producers in the lighting industry should now use the nature of the product as the basis for the decision. In essence, products that are designed solely for businesses should be classified as B2B. Those that are designed for consumers or for both businesses and consumers should be classified as B2C.
