In the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC), the Recycling Regulation 449/2004 manages the waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Manufacturers or importers are responsible for the future e-waste management of most EEE they place into the BC market. This obligation applies to many consumers but also professional products, including some medical devices, professional tools, and monitoring and control instruments
The EPRA (Electronic Products Recycling Association) is in charge of implementing the WEEE rules. More details on the provincial program product definitions and fees are available from the EPRA’s website.
