AbstractIn 2002, the European Union enacted ambitious legislation on the design and endof-
life treatment of electronic products. This paper explores the external effects of
these laws on the California. The EU Directives on the Restriction of Hazardous
Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) and on Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) influenced the introduction of similar regulation
in other jurisdictions. This paper identifies the connections between EU and
Californian e-waste legislation. It analyses the roles of interdependence and
transatlantic learning and it outlines the systemic variables that shaped the
diffusion of EU e-waste policy to California.
