About Brand Data Management System
The Brand Data Management System (BDMS) was developed by the National Center
for Electronics Recycling (NCER) as of part of the MARCEE Project, and the
National Electronics Recycling Infrastructure Clearinghouse – a joint
project with the Consumer Electronics
Association (CEA). The goal of the BDMS is to allow all stakeholders
interested in emerging electronics recycling systems in the US the opportunity
to view and customize brand return share reports from across the country. With
this database, the NCER has compiled the known electronics brand count studies
(referred to on this site as “data sources”), and will be adding more as they
become available. Implementation of electronics recycling laws in
Washington utilizes these and similar data to determine manufacturer
recycling obligations in those states.
The BDMS allows for the management and sorting of the hundreds of different
brands reported by recent brand return studies in order to gain a more detailed
comparison of trends such as variations in brand return share in different
regions, brand ranking trended over time (including changes of top brands
collected), and the number of officially designated orphan brands. Currently
the BDMS includes monitors, TVs, desktop computers and laptop computers in its
scope of products.
Here are few reports that can be generated by the BDMS.
Disclaimers: The BDMS is publicly accessible and is not intended
provide an assessment of any particular electronics recycling financing
approach. The NCER relies on data provided by the Maine Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Maryland Department of the Environment
(MDE) for brand claim status, and does not make independent determinations on
whether a brand is an “orphan” or is owned by a particular manufacturer. While
extensive, the list of brands is not a comprehensive list of all brands of
desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, or televisions on the
market today or sold in the past.
