EEE Put on market is defined as any supply of a product for distribution, consumption or use on the market in the course of a commercial activity, whether in return for payment or free of charge.

E-waste generated is defined as the amount of discarded electrical or electronic products (e-waste) due to consumption within national territory in a given reporting year, prior to any collection, reuse, treatment, or export.

E-waste formally collected represents the e-waste collected as e-waste and regulated by environmental protection laws specifically designed for e-waste. This includes e-waste that is collected and later exported, and treated according to national standards in another country.

E-waste imported/exported is the e-waste that is imported or exported.

E-waste collection rate is the formal collection of e-waste / E-waste generated
