Interested in receiving in-depth information on cutting edge issues in the product stewardship field? PSI networking conference calls offer a carbon-free alternative to in-person workshops and meetings. PSI networking call participants can listen to expert presentations and ask questions on timely product stewardship issues from the comfort of the home or office.
Twenty-four states now have electronics extended producer responsibility (EPR) laws, which vary substantially in terms of which products they cover, how program performance is measured, overall performance targets, reporting requirements and other program aspects. This call will outline the most important elements of a strong product stewardship law, explain state and regional variations, and trace the evolution of program development. The webinar will provide excellent advice for states that have not yet passed an electronics EPR law, as well as those looking to strengthen an existing system. We will hear from state and local officials who have been the champions behind the passage and implementation of their state laws. They will discuss the model they used as a starting point for developing their legislation, which aspects are most important to resolve in legislation, which issues can be handled during implementation and the important lessons they learned in the implementation of their laws. Prior to the webinar, PSI will provide registrants with a “lessons learned” fact sheet to best prepare them for lively discussion on this actively facilitated call.
