Abstract

Toyota's vehicles, Philips' one-cup coffeemakers, and Disney's pendants are some examples of products which were recalled worldwide in 2009. To recall those products for recovery or maintenance, numerous parties (for example supplier and production unit) will be involved in the reverse logistics. The major force affecting the recall of products which are put into reverse logistics is the producer responsibility legislation and directives affecting the European Union or other countries (such as China). To help the parties involved to adapt and prepare for such changes, this paper introduces some green legislation and directives related to reverse logistics, impact on industry, and suggests ways to mitigate risk.
