US: BIS PROPOSES IMPORT/EXPORT RESTRICTIONS ON ELECTRONIC WASTE

DLA Piper on 30th October reported that the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has proposed new export restrictions on electronic waste.  Proposed restrictions include domestic disposal of non-exempt e-waste; reporting requirements; and recordkeeping requirements.  BIS is concerned that national security is jeopardised where counterfeit goods enter the US military and civilian electronics supply chain due to the unregulated recycling of e-waste, and its definition of “electronic waste” reflect this concern.  Public consultation on the proposals is open to 24th December.
