Dear Electronic Waste Stakeholder:


This electronic newsletter is an update on the implementation of California's Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (Act) and other electronic waste (e-waste) management developments in California. 


=========================
In this issue:


REMINDER: CEW PROGRAM RULEMAKING – REGULATIONS AMENDING THE COVERED ELECTRONIC WASTE RECYCLING PROGRAM AND FINALIZING EXISTING EMERGENCY REGULATIONS
=========================


#### Reminder: CEW Program Rulemaking – Regulations Amending the Covered Electronic Waste Recycling Program and Finalizing Existing Emergency Regulations ####


The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) is scheduled to consider an agenda item at its January 24, 2017 Monthly Public Meeting seeking approval to initiate the formal rulemaking process to finalize two current emergency rule packages as well as modify and clarify other rules within the CEW recovery and recycling program. A Public Notice containing additional information, including the proposed rules, is posted on the CalRecycle website at:
http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Actions/PublicNoticeDetail.aspx?id=1994&aiid=1818


The proposed regulations will affect areas within Chapter 8.2 of Division 7 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations.  They will serve as a vehicle to finalize two existing emergency regulation packages that address: 1) the assessing of civil liabilities pursuant to the authority granted under Public Resources Code (PRC) section 42474, and 2) the management of treatment residuals derived from the dismantling of covered electronic waste (CEW).  In addition to other general edits, the proposed rules will also amend and clarify aspects of definitions, applicability and limitations, documents and records, net cost reports, applications, prohibited activities, appeals, requirements for collectors and recyclers, claims, cancellation, and manufacturer payments.
