“B” is the total amount in tonnes of EEE intended for use by private households and falling within the relevant category that has been placed on the market in the United Kingdom by all producers in the same compliance period used in “A”;

“C” is the total amount in tonnes of WEEE from private households which is waste from electrical or electronic equipment that falls within the relevant category which the Secretary of State has determined under regulation 28(5) to be the total amount in tonnes to be financed by producers in that category in the compliance period that follows compliance period used in “A”; and

“D” is the total amount in tonnes of WEEE from private households that has been financed by the scheme in the relevant category during the compliance period used in “A”.
