As per E-waste Management Rules, 2016, Every Producer after getting Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Authorization from Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) must follow the conditions mentioned in the Authorization.
‘Producer' refers to anyone who (i) manufactures and sells electrical and electronic equipment and their components, consumables, parts or spares under their own brand, (ii) sells assembled electrical and electronic equipment and their components, consumables, parts or spares under their own brand, regardless of the selling technique used (dealer, retailer, e-retailer, etc.).
Electronic EPR Compliance: The abbreviation EPR means “Extended Producer Responsibility“. It is about the manufacturer being responsible for his product - starting from the design to the take-back and proper disposal. The goal is to keep the environmental impact as low as possible throughout the entire product life cycle.
