EPA Proposes Revisions to Export Provisions of Cathode Ray Tube Rule

March 2012

As this Report went to press, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a proposal to revise certain export provisions of the conditional hazardous waste exclusion for cathode ray tubes (CRTs) initially adopted in 20061. The proposed revisions will allow the Agency to better track exports of CRTs for recycling. Additionally, EPA proposes to require the submission of more information on shipments of CRTs that are exported for reuse. Comments on the proposal are due no later than May 14, 2012. See next month's Product Stewardship & Sustainability Report for a detailed analysis of the proposed rule.
