The 2006 Regulations transpose the permit requirements of Article 6 and Annexes II and III of Council Directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (OJ No. L37, 13.2.2003, p.24) as amended by Council Directive 2003/108/EC (OJ No. L345, 31.12.2003, p.106).

Paragraph 4 of Schedule 2 to the 2006 Regulations provides for establishments or undertakings that notify an exempt activity falling within paragraph 49 of Schedule 3 to the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 to pay an initial registration fee of £265 and a renewal registration fee of £265. The effect of the amendment is to increase the initial registration fee to £495. The renewal registration fee of £265 is unchanged.
