EPR Registration For E-Waste Management

Overview of EPR Registration For E‐Waste Management

E-waste, commonly referred to as electronic garbage, is a globally expanding stream of wasted goods. As more people use electronic items, India presently produces up to 50 million tonnes of e-waste yearly, and this number is anticipated to rise. accessible. E-waste includes electrical and electronic equipment that is out-of-date, undesired, or damaged, such as refrigerators and cellphones that have outlived their usefulness.

Refusing unnecessary items, reducing what you do need, reusing what you consume, recycling everything you can't refuse, reduce, or reuse, and composting the rest are all important aspects of responsible waste management." Various toxic substances included in e-waste pose threats to the environment and to human health. Among these dangerous compounds are cadmium, brominated flame retardants, beryllium, mercury, lead, and other metals. These substances can leak into the air, water, and land when electronics are improperly disposed of. E-waste is riskier than most other types of municipal waste because of the high concentration of harmful chemicals and metals in it. The brain, kidneys, bones, reproductive system, and endocrine system can all suffer negative effects from prolonged exposure to these drugs.

What is e waste management and how to achieve it?

E-waste management is the process of gathering, recycling, reusing, and disposing of electronic trash sustainably to reduce its negative effects on the environment and human health. Due to a lack of awareness, managing e-waste has grown to be a substantial concern. E-waste management procedures need to be improved and recycling needs to receive more attention.

Exercise good control over the materials utilised in the production process in order to reduce waste formation. Through material-purchase evaluation and control methods, inventory tracking systems, and a reduction in the stock of excess raw materials, this can be accomplished.

Guideline for EPR authorization

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a notion that was codified into law in 2011. Manufacturers are required by EPR to promote ecologically sound management practises and handle the end-of-life stage of their products in an eco-friendly manner. Producers and importers of electrical or electronic equipment must get an EPR licence in order to comply with the

EPR licence or certificate, which is required. This programme promotes businesses to create more ecologically friendly products. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), an agency of the Indian government's Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change (MoEFCC), is responsible for issuing the EPR Authorization.

EPR - e-waste (Management) rules 2022

The E- Waste (Management) Rules 2022, which are slated to go into effect on April 1, 2023, were released by the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change on November 2, 2022. These requirements require that all producers, manufacturers, refurbishers, and recyclers register on the portal, collect any e-waste created during the production, refurbishment, or disposal of any electrical and electronic equipment, and guarantee that it is recycled or disposed of properly. In order to conduct business, entities must register on the portal under the appropriate category, such as manufacturer, producer, refurbisher, or recycler.

It is the responsibility of the producers specified in Schedule I of the E-Waste (Management) Rules to collect, recycle, and discard their electrical and electronic equipment using a licenced dismantler/recycler. To manage e-waste, they must work with authorised recyclers, and they must submit plans to CPCB for expected disposal amounts and procedures in order to receive the EPR Certificate. The capacity of e-waste generated, recycled, or handled by the entities may determine the registration fees and annual maintenance expenses.

Benefits of EPR registration certificate

EPR registration has a number of advantages, including encouraging e-waste recycling and reuse, lowering producers' costs for raw materials, ensuring environmentally friendly management of e-waste, enhancing the marketability of the product and brand, and promoting sustainable development by lowering waste production and resource misuse.

Mandatory products for EPR registration

Information technology and telecommunication equipment as well as consumer electrical and electronic products fall under the two main product categories that demand EPR Authorization. For certain products to continue being manufactured and sold in the Indian market, EPR Authorization is a requirement.


The EPR Authorization or EPR Registration process involves the following steps:
