Interim Industry Standards
Along with the formation of the Product Stewardship Act 2011 and National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) a draft Interim Industry Standard (IIS) was developed for use while an Australian e-waste standard for the collection, transport and recycling of end-of-life televisions and computers was developed. The IIS sets out how operations are conducted by approved Co-regulatory Arrangements (CA) and their contracted service providers.
The IIS was developed by the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) Environmental Special Interest Group (ESIG) whose membership includes major IT brands and Product Stewardship Australia (PSA) comprising of some major TV brands. These two groups also played a major role in the development of the Product Stewardship Act 2011 and both groups also include several ANZRP members.
