What you need to know about the EPR Certificate?

Extended Producer’s Responsibility (EPR) is a requirement for Indian manufacturers and importers of products concerning e-waste management. The EPR Certificate is mandatory for compliance, and authorization is granted by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) under MoEFCC, Government of India.

Once authorized, the manufacturer/importer is responsible for ensuring proper E-waste management of their products once they reach the end of their life cycle.

Is the EPR certificate a legal obligation in India?

The EPR certificate is compulsory for Indian manufacturers and importers to manage E-waste effectively.

Failing to obtain the EPR certificate will result in debarment, fines, or both, and the inability to operate in India.
