EPR Electronic Waste Authorisation

What is E-waste EPR CPCB Authorisation?

  • EPR E Waste registration is permission granted by the CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) to electronic waste producers who are listed in Schedule 1 of the E-Waste (Management) Rules 2016 and 2022. 
  • It is the responsibility of every electronic waste producer to collect the waste generated from their product introduction into the market and channel it to dismantlers, refurbishers, and recyclers of e-waste.
  • Dedicated Team

    We assign a dedicated Operations personnel to your project for clear communication.

  • Precision and Transparency

    We conduct an extensive assessment of your project before taking it up to present a complete situational report.

Why is EPR E Waste Registration important under E-Waste (Management) Rules, 2022?

  • Ensuring that e-waste is managed in an environmentally safe manner is crucial, which is why an EPR CPCB Certificate is essential. 
  • E-waste contains harmful materials like lead and mercury that can pollute the environment and pose a risk to human health if not disposed of properly.
  • Permission from CPCB is also beneficial in promoting the recycling and reuse of e-waste.
  •  This helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and incinerators, which is good for both the environment and human health.
  • 100% Delivery On Commitment
  • Accurate Inputs
  • Fairly Priced Services
  • Happy Clients

E-waste encompasses various electrical and electronic items, including solar panels, that are no longer in use and need proper management to protect our environment and resources.

The E-Waste Rules set out a comprehensive framework to prevent pollution, conserve resources, and promote responsible handling of electronic waste

Manufacturers Producers Refurbishers Recyclers

The definition of "manufacturer" under the rules covers any entity, including companies registered under the Companies Act 2013, factories under the Factories Act 1948, and small and medium enterprises as defined in the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act 2006, that has facilities for producing the electrical and electronic equipment listed in the schedule I.

Under these rules, a "Producer" is any individual or entity who: Makes and sells electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) under their own brand: This includes components, consumables, parts, and spares. Sells assembled EEE under their own brand: Even if they didn't manufacture it themselves. Imports and sells EEE: This includes components, consumables, parts, and spares. Imports used EEE: Regardless of its brand or condition.

Refurbisher" is anyone who fixes or assembles used electronics (listed in Schedule-I) to extend their lifespan and sell them for their original purpose.

A "Recycler" is anyone who processes and recovers valuable materials from discarded electronics and their parts. This includes precious metals, rare earth elements, and other useful resources.
