According to E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2016 an e-waste means electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part discarded as waste by the consumer or bulk consumer as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishment and repair processes.
What is an EPR in E-Waste Management?
According to E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2016 Extended Producer Responsibility’ means responsibility of any producer of electrical or electronic equipment, for channelization of e-waste to ensure environmentally sound management of such waste. Extended Producer Responsibility may comprise of implementing take back system or setting up of collection centers or both and having agreed arrangements with authorized dismantler or recycler either individually or collectively through a Producer Responsibility Organization recognized by producer.
Who needs an EPR in E-Waste Management?
Every producer, manufacturer, refurbisher, dismantler or recycler of electrical and electronic equipment has to obtain a registration from the State Pollution Control Board or the Pollution Control Committee of the Union Territory concerned.
The E-Waste rules apply to 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 in Schedule I, including their components, consumables, parts and spares which make the product operational but shall not apply to -
