Abstract

In this article, we introduce and exemplify existing legislation that regulates the end-of-life processing of used products and discuss potential implications of such legislation on closed-loop supply chains (CLSCs). Using a generic CLSC model, we provide our perspective on how such legislation in general influences different stakeholders in CLSCs.
