Guide for Shipments of Used Vehicles, Vehicle Parts and Waste Electrical Equipment
This guidance document is designed to provide assistance for those organising the shipment of used or pre-owned vehicles, vehicle parts, tyres, electrical and electronic equipment, personal effects, machinery and other items that are still in usable condition.
It aims to clarify and simplify the information contained within the European Union Member States Correspondents' Guidelines No. 9 and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2014 (S.I.149 of 2014).
When used goods are shipped into or out of Ireland for the purpose of re-use, an exporter must be satisfied that the used goods are fit for direct re-use and/or for the same purpose for which the goods were originally designed. It is the responsibility of those parties organising shipments for re-use to ensure that the items being shipped are not waste.
