Mobile phones, often known as cellular phones, have completely changed how people communicate and access information around the world. Indian Technical Standard ITEW15 governs the manufacture and quality criteria for cell phones in India. The aforementioned requirements guarantee that mobile phones are engineered, manufactured, and examined to fulfill acknowledged quality standards, encompassing performance standards, security attributes, and suitability for Indian mobile networks.
Following these guidelines can help a manufacturer gain more credibility with customers, build consumer trust, and open up new markets for their goods in the cutthroat telecom industry. Manufacturers adhering to these criteria support national initiatives aimed at offering consumers and companies cellular phone solutions that are secure and trustworthy.
Note: If cell phone manufacturers want to bring their goods to the Indian market, they must obtain an EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR authorization is a crucial prerequisite for cell phone makers, highlighting their responsibility to manage their products responsibly over the course of their lives. By requiring manufacturers to participate in the correct disposal and recycling of cell phones, this mandated authorization promotes environmental sustainability. Manufacturers of cell phones bear a vital duty in reducing the environmental impact of their devices, protecting precious resources, and fostering a sustainable future by complying with EPR requirements.
The Extended Producers Responsibility Authorization, or EPRA, program is essential for addressing the growing problem of managing electronic trash, or "e-waste." Obtaining the EPR Registration Certificate from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the EPR authorization from the State Pollution Control Boards (SPCBs) are the two steps in the process of obtaining EPR authorization. The purpose of EPRA is to transfer management of e-waste from local governments and consumers to companies that manufacture and import electronic goods. Electronics producers and importers are bound by EPRA to be accountable for the full lifespan of their goods, from manufacturing to disposal. This entails setting up and providing financing for recycling centers, collection systems, and appropriate e-waste disposal techniques. To lessen the negative effects of electronic gadgets on the environment, EPRA encourages manufacturers to incorporate easier recycling into the design of their goods.
