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). On July 28, 2006, EPA finalized the rule streamlining the management requirements for the recycling of used CRTs and glass removed from CRTs under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. On June 18, 2014, EPA finalized revisions to the export provisions of the 2006 CRT final rule.
