Manufacturers Registration Requirements
Oregon’s 2019 legislature changed the registration
requirements for manufacturers beginning Jan. 1, 2020 (HB 3114). The changes are reflected below.
Jan. 1 of each year, manufacturers of computers, monitors, TVs and printers
(covered devices) must register with DEQ for that upcoming year if they either:
- Will sell or offer for
sale their covered devices in or into Oregon during that year
- Their brands of
covered devices were sold in or into Oregon during the previous year and
are not registered by another manufacturer.
Manufacturers who do not
meet either of these criteria are no longer required to register even if their
covered devices have been or are returned for recycling through Oregon
The annual registration and registration fee
- Oct. 15 - Dec. 31 – manufacturers register
- January - February – DEQ requests market share information from registered manufacturers
- March – DEQ sends preliminary registration fees and tier assignments to manufacturers
- May – DEQ sends registration fee invoices
- July 1 – Registration fee payments are due
A manufacturer includes any entity that:
- Manufactures covered devices under a brand that it owns or is licensed to use (unless the license is to manufacture covered devices for delivery exclusively to or at the order of the licenser);
- Sells covered devices manufactured by others under a brand that the seller owns;
- Manufactures covered devices without affixing a brand;
- Manufactures covered devices to which it affixes a brand that it does not own; or
- On whose account covered devices are imported into the US (unless at the time they were imported they were registered by another manufacturer).
This service is a tool developed by the Electronics
Recycling Coordination Clearinghouse, and provides a central platform for
manufacturers to register their covered devices for multiple states with electronics
recycling laws. If you have not already done so, please visit www.ecycleregistration.org
to set up your account.
The biggest benefit is that it makes registering
for Oregon E-Cycles in subsequent years a lot easier. After you set up your
account and register for the first time, you’ll simply need to verify or edit
that information in subsequent years. That should avoid redundant data entry
for both you and DEQ.

and compliance issues; the billing contact receives invoices.
