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 Maine and 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.
