E-scrap regulations: calls for stronger enforcement

Demands for an enhanced producer responsibility system and on-going adaptation of the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) by EU member states provided the two main areas of discussion at the 2008 International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC) in Salzburg, Austria. The congress was marked by a call for greater enforcement of regulations, increased collection rates and prevention of illegal shipments of e-waste. Harmonisation and simplification of regulations were seen as top priorities to enhance the safe treatment of discarded electronics.
