This map provides an overview of existing regulatory approaches for chemicals in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) based on a report developed by UN Environment Programme. Information on individual approaches can be found by hovering the cursor over each country and includes the name of the laws/regulation in place, individual chemicals and products addressed and the type of regulatory action taken. The focus of the map lies on laws and regulations stipulating chemical-specific provisions explicitly for EEE. Provisions resulting from overarching-chemicals regulation are currently not considered.


This data visualization was prepared under the Global Environment Facility (GEF) full-sized project 9771: Global best practices on emerging chemical policy issues of concern under the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM). This project is funded by the GEF, implemented by UNEP, and executed by the SAICM Secretariat.
