Product for EPRA for E-Waste



Product : Thermostats

IS Standard : LSEEW24

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy that shifts the responsibility for managing the end-of-life of a product from the government to the producer. In the case of thermostats, this means that manufacturers and importers of thermostats in India are responsible for collecting and recycling end-of-life thermostats.

There are a number of benefits to EPR for thermostats. First, it helps to ensure that thermostats are properly disposed of and recycled, which can help to protect the environment. Second, EPR can help to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfills. Third, EPR can help to create jobs in the recycling and reuse sector.

To obtain EPR authorization for thermostats in India, manufacturers and importers must meet certain requirements. These requirements include:

  • Registering with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB)
  • Paying an EPR fee
  • Developing a plan for collecting and recycling end-of-life thermostats
  • Complying with all applicable laws and regulations

Once a manufacturer or importer has obtained EPR authorization, they are required to collect and recycle a certain percentage of end-of-life thermostats. The percentage that must be collected and recycled varies depending on the type of thermostat.

EPR is an important policy that can help to protect the environment and create jobs. If you are a manufacturer or importer of thermostats in India, I encourage you to learn more about EPR and how you can obtain EPR authorization.
