The WEEE Forum is the world's largest multi-national centre of competence as regards practical and operational know-how concerning the management of electrical and electronic waste. The Key Figures platform allows member organisations to benchmark their performance and to provide solid, comparable data to stakeholders. Every year, around Easter, members are asked to provide their statistics on the quantities of electrical and electronic equipment that their client producers have put on the market, and the quantities of WEEE that they have collected, to a web-based software platform.
All data are stored in a black box. For example, the overviews do not disclose the identity of the provider of data, averages are calculated and minimum/maximum ranges are provided. Each member can make its own overviews of the type of results it is interested in.
The platform contains, from 2014 onwards, also market and business intelligence, i.e. qualitative information on the WEEE market, regulations, and information of a general nature that will allow the users to benchmark their activities.
