Export Requirements for Cathode Ray Tubes

A cathode ray tube (CRT) is the glass video display component of an electronic device (usually a television or computer monitor). In 2006, EPA finalized a rule streamlining the management requirements for the recycling of used CRTs and glass removed from CRTs under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (71 FR 42928, July 28, 2006). In 2014, EPA finalized revisions to the export provisions of the CRT final rule (79 FR 36220, June 26, 2014).

Note: The 2014 CRT export rule becomes effective December 26, 2014. The e-CFR links below will not reflect the new requirements until after this effective date.
