Extended Producer’s Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach that requires manufacturers and importers to take full responsibility for the management of their product waste. In India, a mandatory EPR Certificate from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) must be obtained in order to protect against debarment, fine or both for improperly managing waste created by products.
Is an EPR certificate mandatory in India?
Manufacturers and importers in India are legally obligated to secure an EPR Certificate if they wish to do business. If these businesses do not comply with this requirement, they can face punishments such as debarment, fines, or both. The Certificate serves as a way to manage e-waste and keep it from accumulating dangerously.
How to Apply for an EPR Certificate:
To acquire an EPR Certificate, you must submit an application form with basic information such as the contact information of the producer, a breakdown of your electric and electronic equipment, estimated e-waste generation from your products, as well as strategies to meet extended producer responsibilities and hazardous substance reduction requirements. The CPCB may request additional documents for verification and review. The CPCB will issue an EPR Certificate upon successfully submitting all required documents and other information.
