One of Canada’s largest electronics recycling companies, says that government plans to restrict e-scrap exports will complicate – but certainly not debilitate – shipments of circuit boards to smelters.

Canada’s environmental ministry recently announced changes to the e-scrap export regulations to bring Canada’s laws in line with changes to the Basel Convention, to which Canada is a party. The draft regulatory changes are now available for public comment.

In general, the updates will require parties to get prior approval from recipient countries before they can export non-hazardous e-scrap.
