This document provides a comparison between five current technical and environmental standards for the treatment of WEEE: A Swiss (Swico/SENS), two European (WEEELabex and Cenelec) as well as to North American (R2 and e-Stewards). Through this comparison, the document seeks to establish a solid foundation for the development and implementation of a corresponding standard in Colombia. The comparison covers all types of WEEE and its components and considers all steps from the collection and transportation to dismantling, processing and final disposal.
