The use of technology is constantly increasing in Bangladesh, at the same time, the production of telecommunication products is increasing along with the import of telecommunication products. The result has been e-waste management.

To ensure that e-waste management and recycling is done in an environmentally friendly manner, the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has taken steps to formulate “Telecom E-Waste Management and Recycling System Guidelines”.

Following this, five types of products have been included in the draft guidelines under e-waste.

The BTRC has sought public awareness and opinion on the guideline. The draft directive states that e-waste management must be approved by the commission before it can be managed and that e-waste management organizations cannot conduct activities in populated or locality areas.

The draft guidelines further state that telecom equipment collected through electronic waste management cannot be marketed in the country as a refurbished device in any way.

The BTRC said that feedback on the draft guidelines would be received by 5 pm on July 20. Feedback can be sent via e-mail.
