During last monthGavel and law ‘s virtual meeting with the USEPA on tracking e-waste, the following question was posed:

  • Should tracking electronics be regulated by state or national law or, should/could voluntary standards organizations insert tracking requirements into their standards?

This dialog is real. The federal government has studies underway and is considering a tracking pilot toward achievement of the goals set forth in the National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship (NSES).

Weigh in and share your comments. This dialog will be shared with the USEPA for consideration as they work toward tracking domestic flows of e-waste.
