What is EPR Registration?

EPR stands for extended producer responsibility. Extended producer responsibility is the responsibility of every producer producing electrical or electronic equipment’s to move or shift the e-waste to an authorized dismantler or recycler to ensure environmentally sound management of such waste. It is approved and authorized by Central pollution control board (CPCB) whose main responsibility is to grant, renew or refuse EPR and provide authorization to producers of electrical or electronic equipment’s. EPR concept is introduced to support improved collection, recycling & treatment of waste.

EPR authorization is mandatory and must be obtained by all the producers including importers, e-retailers/online sellers such as e-bay, Flipkart, Amazon etc. for electrical and electronic equipment’s covered in e-waste. A producer can implement its EPR by setting collection centers or through take back system or both for moving or shifting e-waste/end of life products to authorized dismantler’s or recycler’s.

In order to move or shift the e-waste, producers need to make preparations by associating themselves with authorized dismantler’s/recycler’s individually or collectively or through a producer responsibility organization (PR0).
