  • § 7556. Retailer obligations

    (a) Sale prohibited. Beginning July 1, 2010, no retailer shall sell or offer for sale a covered electronic device unless the covered electronic device is labeled by the manufacturer as required by subdivision 7553(a)(3) of this title, and the retailer has reviewed the website required in subdivision 7559(6) of this title to determine that the labeled manufacturers of all new covered electronic devices that the retailer is offering for sale are registered with the Agency of Natural Resources.

    (b) Expiration or revocation of manufacturer registration. A retailer shall not be responsible for an unlawful sale under this subdivision if the manufacturer was not registered or the manufacturer's registration expired or was revoked if the retailer took possession of the covered electronic device prior to July 1, 2010 or prior to the expiration or revocation of the manufacturer's registration, and the unlawful sale occurred within six months after the expiration or revocation.

    (c) Customer information. Beginning July 1, 2011, a retailer who sells new covered electronic devices shall provide information to customers describing where and how they may recycle electronic waste and advising them of opportunities and locations for the convenient collection of electronic waste for the purpose of recycling. This requirement may be met by the posting of signs provided under the Standard Plan or a plan approved under section 7554 of this title that includes a warning that electronic waste shall not be disposed of in a solid waste facility and that provides a toll-free number or website address regarding proper disposal of covered electronic devices.
