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.
What is E-waste:
E-waste management is an ongoing issue in India, where thousands of households living in urban areas are engaged in collecting, sorting, repairing, refurbishing and dismantling disused electrical and electronic products. This sector also heavily relies on informal channels to recycle e-waste in an efficient and safe manner.
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 EPR 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.
Additionally, additional documents may be requested by the CPCB for verification and review. Upon successful submission of all required documents and other information, an EPR Certificate will be issued by the CPCB.
