    Abstract Currently, countries lack a uniform measurement system for waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste or WEEE). However, there is already substantial data available for both developed and less-developed countries that relate to e-waste statistics. In order to improve comparability between countries, a sound measurement framework is proposed that integrates and validates available harmonized statistical data and other non-statistical data sources into e-waste statistics. This measurement framework is presented along with a classification of e-waste. Though the classification is, at this stage, standalone, it links to multiple data sources and data formats, such as the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) and the EU WEEE Directive reporting. The parameters in the measurement framework and classification can also function as a backbone for data gathering and thus enable the measurement of these flows. The framework captures the most important elements of e-waste and is relevant to all countries. Finally, indicators can be constructed from the framework, which can provide a useful overview of the size of the market for electronic and electrical products within a country, as well as its e-waste arising and e-waste treatment performance and serve as a resource for policymaking.
