EXTENDED PRODUCER RESPONSIBILITY (EPR) FROM CENTRAL POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD (CPCB)

INTRODUCTION

Due to Increasing amounts of waste, Indian government has reviewed available policy options and concluded that placing the responsibility for the post-consumer phase of certain goods on producers could be an option. Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach under which makers are given a significant responsibility – financial and/or physical – for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer products. Assigning such responsibility could in principle provide incentives to prevent wastes at the source, promote product design for the environment and support the achievement of public recycling and materials management goals. Within the OECD the trend is towards the postponement of EPR to new products, product groups and waste streams such as electrical appliances and electronics.

Two categories of electrical and electronic equipment namely:

  •  (i) IT and Telecommunication Equipment and
  •  (ii) Consumer Electricals and Electronics such as TVs, Refrigerators Air Conditioners including fluorescent and other mercury containing lamps are covered under these Rules.
Central Pollution Control Board directs producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment to obtain EPR – Authorization

The Central Pollution Control Board (“CPCB”) has, in a recent notice, emphasized the requirement for all producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (“EEE”), under the E-Waste Management Rules, 2016, to obtain Extended Producer Accountability – Authorization (“EPR – Authorization”) from CPCB. The EPR – Authorization can be obtained by applying in Form-I.

The EPR – Authorization is needed to be obtained for ensuring that end – of – life EEE generated from the products of the producers are channelized to authorised dismantlers/ recyclers.

Failure to obtain EPR- Authorization will be considered a violation of the Rules and will be punishable under Section 15 of the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 i.e., with imprisonment upto 5 years with fine uptoRs. 1 Lac, or with both.
