Following a number of years of policy review and legislative drafting work, China’s State Council promulgated on February 25, 2009, the Administrative Regulations on the Collection and Disposal of Waste Electric and Electronic Products (the “WEEE Regulations”), in order to implement the provisions of the Law on the Promotion of Clean Production and the Law on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Waste. The WEEE Regulations, which will come into effect on January 1, 2011, complement the Administrative Measures on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products (often referred to as “China RoHS”), which were promulgated on February 28, 2006, and came into effect on March 1, 2007 (see Morrison & Foerster’s 2006 China Law Bulletin). They are modeled, to some extent, on the European Union Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (the “European Directive”) (see Morrison & Foerster’s legal updates on the European Directive).
