How To Surrender EPR E-Waste Certificate


Introduction of EPR E-waste

Producers' Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is controlled by obtaining a Registration Certificate and meeting Recycling Targets or EPR obligations. The E-Waste EPR Portal serves as an online system for managing E-Waste, allowing producers to apply for Registration Certificates and Recycling Targets/EPR obligations online. All stakeholders such as Producers, Recyclers, Refurbishes, and Manufacturers must enroll in this system. The CPCB will issue an EPR Registration Certificate to Producers via the portal once they provide the necessary information by the SOP. The producer must meet their extended producer responsibility by buying an extended producer responsibility certificate online from registered recyclers exclusively and must then submit it by filing the quarterly return online. ‘Producer’ refers to any individual, regardless of the method of sale employed, such as a dealer, retailer, e-retailer, etc.

What is EPR for E-Waste?

EPR requires manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment to ensure they collect and dispose of their products properly after they become waste. This involves arranging and funding the collection, recycling, and disposal of electronic waste.

E-waste Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy that places a large burden on producers, either financially or physically, for managing post-consumer products. This motivates manufacturers to create eco-friendly products and ensure they manage the disposal of their products responsibly. 

Importance of Extended Producer Responsibility for Electronic Waste

  • Environmental Protection: Minimizes the environmental harm caused by e-waste through encouraging recycling and appropriate disposal.
  • Resource Efficiency: It promotes the recycling and reusing of valuable materials to decrease the use of virgin resources.
  • Circular Economy: It Promotes the shift to a circular economy by ensuring products are created with their disposal in consideration.

EPR Electronic Waste Regulation 2022

This applies to all manufacturers, producers, refurbishers, dismantlers, and recyclers participating in the activities related to e-waste or electrical and electronic equipment listed in Schedule I, including components and spares that are essential for the product's operation, with exceptions.

The 2022 Rules mark a significant advancement in creating an eco-friendly e-waste management policy and clarify the guidelines controlling the e-waste sector in India. The Government appears to be moving towards a simplified, digital-friendly e-waste governance model by choosing registration over authorization and implementing the Portal for registration, meeting EPR obligations, and filing purposes. Increasing penalties also helps to achieve a sustainable environment.

Types of Entities Involved in the Process

Manufacturers: Manufacturer refers to an individual, organization, or company with the necessary facilities for producing electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) outlined in Schedule I.

Producers: an individual or organization that, -

  • Produces and makes available for purchase EEE along with their components, consumables, parts, and spares; or
  • Provides for sale items under the trademark EEE, along with its various components, consumables, or parts
  • Provides the option to purchase imported EEE and their components, consumables, parts, or spares; or
  • Who brings in second hand electrical and electronic equipment

Refurbisher: It is defined as any individual or organization that repairs or puts together used EEE items listed in Schedule-I to prolong their operational lifespan.

Recycler: It is an individual or organization involved in recycling and processing waste EEE, assemblies, or their components or parts.

Bulk consumers are defined as organizations that utilize a minimum of 1000 units of electrical and electronic equipment at any point within a fiscal year. Bulk consumers must only give their electronic waste to registered producers, refurbishers, or recyclers.
