Additional Details


The June 20, 2017 workshop invites stakeholders to participate in a focused discussion on one particular aspect of the project: identifying and developing criteria by which various product categories could be evaluated for potential inclusion in the definition of a covered electronic device (CED) in the context of a new or existing material management program. 


California’s existing electronic waste management program has been highly successful in collecting and properly handling over two billion pounds of covered electronic wastes (CEW).  However, the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 narrowly defines CED as certain video display devices (Public Resources Code 42463(e)).  Stakeholders have frequently expressed interest in adding new devices to this definition. Such an expansion in covered devices would require legislation.  We have also allocated time to explore definitions for product categories and for the introduction of concepts encouraging product longevity, reuse, and reparability.  If you are interested in helping to shape the scope of the electronic waste management universe through sound criteria, your participation is encouraged.
