UK businesses should agree recycling contracts with suppliers at the point of purchase or risk facing high recycling costs, the Industry Council for Electronic Equipment Recycling (ICER) has warned.

The advice comes as part of ICER's response to three proposals adopted by the European Commission on 13 June.

The first two deal with the collection and recovery of discarded electronic equipment, and outline restrictions on the use of hazardous substances in production stage, while the third focuses on the environmental design of equipment.

Joy Boyce, chairwoman of industry council and head of corporate environmental affairs at ICL, said the three proposals raised practical problems for users but largely focused on producer responsibility.

The proposals look set to become UK law in 2002.
