Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a key component of the approach to E Waste Management. The E Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011 and the E Waste (Management) Rules, 2016 covers all types of electronic products, including mobile phones and their chargers, batteries and other accessories, except television sets. The producer bears the entire cost of collection, transport and treatment/recovery for collecting all such goods at the end of their life. In the case of E waste Management Rules in India, producers, e.g. Manufacturers, Importers and Retailers, must take the responsibility of E Waste management after providing information to consumers on how to dispose of e waste.
EPR Certificate is mandatory for all manufacturers, importers, and dealers for E-Waste in India. With EPR India registration, you can also become an authorized dealer of E-Waste management from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) under the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Govt of India. EPR Certification is helpful for both manufacturers and importers of the country. Corpseed takes care of the complete documentation, formalities and government clearances in securing EPR certificate for its clients. Corpseed offers EPR Authorization services to all the activities involved in collecting and processing e-waste, products such as computers, televisions, refrigerators, cell phones, printers and accessories.
The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) of the Government of India Rules that all manufacturers, importers, and brand owners are responsible for managing plastic waste from their products by setting up collection centers and recycling processes and running awareness programs.
