Proposed list is too narrow in scope
The proposed list of hazardous substances focuses mostly on consumer equipment, especially computers and displays. As a consequence, the list will provide minimal guidance on a a wide variety of other electronic equipment e.g., medical equipment or professional equipment.

“The list should be removed.  In addion [sic] to the concern identified above, the BAN table is limited in scope, focusing on computers and displays, which provides minimal to no guidance on a wide variety of other electronic products such as medical devices.”

From p. 1 of response by Philips to  Basel Secretariat. 2012. ‘Draft Technical Guidelines on Transboundary Movement of E-Waste, in Particular Regarding the Distinction between Waste and Non-Waste (Version 8 May 2012)’.
