With continuous Digitization and research in electronics, there has been increase in E-Waste of products that are used regularly by consumers all around. This Extended Producer Responsibility is the one of the protocol that highlights the importance of the manufacture in regulating the life cycle of their products after they are consumed. With their pollution surmounting and increasing year after year, Indian Government started gave EPR policy in 2011 and further accredited CPCB for authorising certification with EPR.
Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has been given the authority to authorise new E-waste rules under the jurisdiction of Environment ministry. Companies now have to consult CPCB to get their E-waste management certification, this is where IndianNexus can use their expertise in making sure your products.
We want to introduce our self as a consultant in EPR authorisation registration. We work as a PRO & liaison in this field. Services that IndianNexus can aid in related with EPR Authorization with concerned regulations
- Obtaining the necessary requirements for product life recycle
- Form filling procedure step by step EPR(pollution Control) with CPCB
- Creating product usability and disposal awareness
- Marking End of life products and waste disposal markings
- Record keeping support (Form 2 Support)
- Maintain all the concerned records and file annual returns with all the legal requirements.
- Acquiring Pan India Authorization
In EPR producers are given extra responsibility (physical/financial) for treating their disposals in a manner to either reuse them systematically. CPCB has in their notice emphasized all producer's of Electrical and Electronic Equipment under the E-Waste rules of 2016 to get EPR certification.
Every manufacturer, producer, consumer, bulk consumer, collection centres, dealers, e-retailer, refurbisher, dismantler and recycler involved in manufacture, sale, transfer, purchase, collection, storage and processing of e-waste or electrical and electronic equipment listed come under these E-waste rules.
First of all Form-1 needs to be filled by the concerned producer and then with in 120 days after undergoing thoroughly inspection CPCB will grant the respective authorsation. This certificate once acquired shall remain valid for five years from the date of announcement.
Before 120 days of expiry one can file for renewal of their certificate with CPCB, for which compliance report must be obtained from concerned State Pollution Control Board. Every year producer must submit their annual records on or before the 30th day of June of every year.
