SAP Recycling Administration (REA)
Recycling Management is growing ever more demanding. Legal requirements, coupled with an increasing awareness of the environment, have confronted modern enterprises with a completely new challenge. In Europe, packaging waste, disposed batteries and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives requires manufacturers for the correct disposal and recycling of their waste products. To comply with these directives on waste, companies must submit information on the products they bring into market to a central agency, which consolidates the data for local authorities. Firms that operate globally must account for country-specific differences in the respective directives, making compliance even more challenging.
