Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Registration

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach under which producers are given a significant responsibility – financial and/or physical – for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer products. Assigning such responsibility could in principle provide incentives to prevent wastes at the source, promote product design for the environment and support the achievement of public recycling and materials management goals.

In India, manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic products are required to comply to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) rules and regulations. They are required to register

Approximate timeline

CPCB takes approximately around 6-8 months for scrutinizing the documents and complete the registration process.
