Regulatory compliance solutions and support to ensure that e-waste compliance is reached and maintained in both Canada and the U.S.

The global marketplace is a combination of global pressures and local requirements. For example, in North America, the majority of product requirements are driven by the legislative requirements of individual US states or Canadian provinces. The end result is that each state and provincial legislation has its own specific requirements and nuances. In addition, comprehensive environmental procurement specifications, such as the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), have seen a significant increase in usage by institutional buyers in North America.
