ELV Directive 85% target achievement

Target achievement is a legal compliance that currently exists outside of the Waste Management Licence or permit. So having a WML will not mean that an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) has achieved target

It is understood that the EC is currently considering prosecuting the UK for its failure to achieve targets in the period 2006-2010. This is likely to mean that the UK Government is embarrassed into doing something about it!

There are currently 20 prosecutions pending for companies that have failed to report on their targets. This is just the first batch. It is entirely possible that once the prosecutions have started, attention will switch to ATFs that have reported, but failed to achieve target.

Target compliance is tied to the number of CODs issued by an ATF, and the number of Category C vehicles being scrapped is also an issue of current debate, particularly in view of the fact that 75% of Category C vehicles do not undergo a Vehicle Identity Check (VIC).
