Under these state laws, non-registered brands or non-compliant manufacturers cannot sell their covered devices in the state, either directly or through physical or online retailers, and responsible manufacturers may face penalties for not registering and/or meeting recycling program obligations. Currently, your products may not be sold by any means in the states in which your brand/s is listed as non-compliant or not registered. In addition to registering your brand, the state law may require you to establish or join a recycling program and meet specific requirements.

The ERCC urges you to contact the relevant state program manager immediately and take the steps necessary to comply with the state laws. The information below provides links to web pages for each state law, and a complete list of state agency contacts.

ERCC maintains an updated chart of non-compliant/unregistered manufacturers on its website (www.ecycleclearinghouse.org). ERCC will remove your company from this list when it comes into compliance in all states. In addition, the ERCC is conducting outreach to major retailers to inform them of the brands that appear on the state non-compliance lists that may not be sold in their stores.

Should you have any questions or need additional help, please contact Jason Linnell, at (304) 699-1008 or by email to jlinnell@electronicsrecycling.org, or contact any of the state program managers where your company is listed directly with the enclosed contact information.
