Introduction: Extended Producer Responsibility
Due to Increasing amounts of waste, the 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.
