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.
