Profiles of LAC Policies Regarding WEEE

This section contains profiles – “snapshots” – of the evolving situation regarding waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in LAC nations and their policy responses. The profiles cover mostly the federal dimension, although in countries where sub-federal jurisdictions play a crucial role (such as Argentina, Brazil and Mexico), their impact is discussed as appropriate.

The profiles cover not only traditional focuses of e-waste policies (CRTs, cell phones, circuit boards) but also related component issues, such as batteries, lamps, printer/toner cartridges, and disks. Also discussed are relavant ROHS (restriction of hazardous substances) initiatives regarding affecting electrical and electronic products.

Temas Actuales believes that regulatory regimes cannot be considered in isolation from the context of the local realities on the ground, so each profile opens with a brief discussion of the political, governance and economic realities shaping WEEE/ROHS policy in the profiled country, such as changes in retailing and trends in waste management and disposal. Most profiles include charts and statistics that are very hard to find in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Profiles also include a handy directory of relevant institutions and their contact information.

You can’t find this type of up-to-date analysis on e-waste in Latin America and the Caribbean in any other commercial website or publication!
