Title:Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC)
Author(s):Goldberg, Terry
Subject(s):Mercury -- Information resources
Abstract:Starting in 1999 the states in the Northeast and other parts of the country actively began to pursue enactment of legislation focused on reducing mercury in products and waste. In the Northeast, these efforts focused on enactment of provisions of the Mercury Education and Reduction Model Legislation.

In 2001 NEWMOA launched the Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC) to provide ongoing technical and programmatic assistance to states that have enacted mercury education and reduction legislation and a single point of contact for industry and the public for information on mercury-added products and member states' mercury education and reduction programs.

The IMERC state members include Connecticut, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
