E-waste is referred to the waste generated from the electrical and electronic devices that are discarded due to technological upgradation and are not fit for use. This e-waste produced contain several contaminants such as lead, cadmium and mercury which must be processed, recycled and disposed responsibly so that it won’t harm eco-system. EPR stand extended producer’s responsibility. EPR certificate is issued by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).
The manufacturer/trader/importers of electrical and electronic products having an E-waste management plan and an agreement with recycling agency can apply for E-waste certificate.
Total time for filing and issuing of E-waste certificate will be approx. 30 working days after submitting all the required documents.
Absolute Veritas (AV) will handle end-to-end account creation, documentation and application process for EPR Certificate.
