SALEM, OR – Electronics manufacturers pursuing individual or group recycling programs in compliance with Oregon's new electronics recycling law must submit plans by July 1.

The Oregon Electronics Recycling Law (ORS 495A.300-.365) mandates all manufacturers of CEDs (covered electronic devices) sold or offered for sale in the state must register with the Department of Environmental Quality and pay an annual registration fee to fund the program’s administrative costs. Manufacturers then choose to manage their own statewide collection programs or participate in a state contractor program that DEQ will establish.
The law covers desktop computers, portable computers, monitors and TVs. Manufacturers cover their own company-run program costs or pay a fee to participate in the state contractor program. All programs must be in operation by Jan. 1, and the disposal of CEDs is prohibited in Oregon as of Jan. 1, 2010. Furthermore, beginning Jan. 1, only registered brands are eligible for sale in or into the state.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
