|Product Stewardship and the Internet of Things: Emerging Challenges|
|The proliferation of “connected” technology into a wide variety of consumer products has begun to raise new challenges as states and localities grapple with how to deal with these products once they are discarded. Many state product stewardship programs are premised on assumptions about the types, volumes, and chemical and toxicity characteristics of materials that are in regulated products, but these assumptions may need to be updated in light of the integration of technology – and the materials that make up that technology – into these products. This session will identify key legal and regulatory challenges that extended producer responsibility stakeholders will have to grapple with as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand.
