CEA Applauds Obama Administration’s Move to Challenge China on Rare Earth Restrictions

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today applauded the Obama Administration on its plan to challenge China on rare earth minerals at the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since 2010, rare earth commodity prices have risen sharply when China took actions to control its supply, which represents more than 90 percent of global demand.

“CEA today welcomes the Obama Administration's announcement that it will challenge China at the WTO,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. "If China wants to be a world player in trade, it needs to behave like one. For far too long our member companies, particularly small companies manufacturing here in the United States have been bearing the cost burden of China's unfair practices. We welcome this move and the goal of diversifying the sources of these important minerals used in consumer electronics products.”

CEA Objects to California Energy Commission Move to Regulate Consumer Electronics

Innovation, Not Regulation is Making Consumer Electronics More Efficient

Arlington, Va., Mar. 14, 2012 - The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® strongly objects to the California Energy Commission (CEC) announced plans for a new round of regulatory standards for consumer electronics products including computers, displays, game consoles, imaging equipment, servers and set-top boxes.
“California should not distinguish itself as the enemy of innovation. We continue to be concerned about how regulations are being justified and supported by the California Energy Commission,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. “The CEC’s approach, which focuses on setting artificial limits on consumer products, threatens to stifle innovation and economic growth within an industry already on the vanguard of energy efficiency. CEA supports programs defining energy usage consistently and conveying such information to consumers.
“Moreover, we embrace and sell the majority of products certified as meeting the voluntary standards of ENERGY STAR. Our nation’s need for innovation in leading areas like IT, the Internet, the cloud, entertainment and broadband may be threatened by technology mandates based on flawed justifications, as we have witnessed in three CEC rulemakings to date. We urge the state to work with us on proven approaches to sustainability, such as encouraging innovation in the field of eCycling, meeting green product standards, and educating policymakers and consumers alike on energy efficiency trends and savings opportunities.”
