Where can I the latest information on WEEE and RoHS Implementaion in the European Member States be found?

There is no place that currently has all the up to date implementation information by Member States on WEEE and RoHS. The EU official website CELEX in principal has such a site at http://europa.eu.int/comm/environment/waste/weee_index.htm has general information at the European level but does not cover the state level. Tthe DTI commissioned a consultancy (Perchards) to produce a quarterly update on the transposition of the WEEE Directive. The report is published on the DTI website and can be down loaded free of charge from http://164.36.164.20/sustainability/weee/Perchardsreport_November05.pdf.

Finally you will find on this website the links to legislation texts from the Member States along with key deviations from other countries are being published as details become available. The site is fairly up to date and includes the texts from the majority of member states

Because of the diversity of official languages used in Member States, is there any way to find a copy of all the national laws and regulations in English or my own national language?

No - There is no requirement on Member States to publish an English language version of there own national legislation. English translations are however being put on this website as they become available.

Under the principles of internal market and free movement of goods in the internal market, the goods allowed importation into a Member State should be able to move freely into other Member States. Will the difference/discrepancy among Member States effect or hinder the free movement of products among Member States once they have been imported into one of Member States?

All products put on the market in a Member State must be registered in that country and will need to satisfy the regulations of that state even if it is first imported into another Member State. Once it has been sold the user can move between Member States freely with that product.

At the end-of-life the product becomes hazardous waste and movement between states is affected by the transport of hazardous waste legislation.
