Introduction to Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) Authorization

Producer Responsibility Organization referred to as 'PRO'. Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) policies recently introduced by CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board). PRO legislation deals with end plastic goods management and recyclable of the goods. The increasing consumption of a range of complex durable goods over the years has caused serious environmental problem. Proper handling/ management of the waste produced has been a matter of serious alarm for policymakers. The authorities recently introduced a policy for producers of these goods to be responsible for their end-of-life management. Such producers may also choose to delegate this responsibility to a third party who is authorized by the CPCB department,

Most of these guidelines are based on the principle of EPR (Extended producer responsibility), which makes the producers responsible for the environmental effects throughout the life-cycle of products. 


Legislation of PRO

In India, the concept of PRO (Producer Responsibility Organization) is defined in two sectors,

  • Plastic waste management
  • e-Waste Management. 


The E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2016, and Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016, make producers of such products shall be responsible for the collection of plastic electronic products waste. Such producers need to establish a system to collect back the waste generated due to their products.


Role of PRO

Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) assist the producers upon engagement in one or more of the following tasks:

  • Achieve the target of collection.
  • Establishment of waste collection methods such as door to door collection.
  • Buyback/take back implementation
  • Arrangements of the logistics 
  • Create the traceability process of the e-waste collected and channelized & dismantle of waste & end of life plastic waste.
  • Assisting producers in the filing of quarterly/annual returns as per the rules.
  • Guide on extended producer's responsibility plan as legally required.


Capability and capacity of PRO

A Producer/Agency should mention its capacity for waste handling, this includes include capacity for storage, collection, and recyclers with whom it has an arrangement for recycling of such waste. A producer should also be skilled in channelizing plastic and electronic waste for meeting the collection targets of its Producers/Brand Owners.
