This report is intended as a record by the Carpet Stewardship Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Joint Committee to record the status of the national MOU Negotiations. The Joint Committee are those individuals that participated as voting members in the national MOU Negotiations. The purpose of the negotiations, which took place from April 2010 through August 2011, was to create the elements of a new MOU, to replace the original MOU signed in 2002. The negotiation process did not result in the agreements necessary to develop a new MOU. The Joint Committee voted unanimously to adopt this report as the record of its work to date, on September 8, 2011.
