Modern computing relies heavily on electronic data storage devices because they give users a way to store and retrieve digital data. Indian Technical Standard ITEW27, which specifies particular technical specifications, quality requirements, safety precautions, and testing procedures that manufacturers of electronic data storage devices must adhere to, governs the manufacturing and quality standards for electronic data storage devices in India.
These standards guarantee that these products, in terms of performance criteria, data security features, and interoperability with Indian technological environments, are designed, produced, and tested to satisfy acknowledged quality benchmarks. Following these guidelines can help manufacturers build their brand, win over customers, and get their products noticed in the crowded market for data storage devices.
Note: To demonstrate their commitment to recycling and disposing of products in an ecologically friendly manner, manufacturers of electronic data storage devices are required to obtain an EPR Registration Certificate.
To demonstrate their commitment to sustainable environmental practices and responsible handling of electronic waste, producers of electronic data storage devices must obtain an EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) authorization. Manufacturers can help create a circular economy by receiving an EPR authorization, which allows them to manage their products in an eco-friendly manner, extending their lifespan and minimizing waste output. It shows that they are actively involved in cutting down on technological waste and protecting valuable resources.
An essential program to handle the expanding problem of managing electronic trash, or "e-waste," is called EPRA, or Extended Producer's Responsibility Authorization. Securing EPR authorization from the State Pollution Control Boards (SPCBs) and receiving the EPR Registration Certificate from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) are the two steps in the process of obtaining EPR authorization. With the help of EPRA, manufacturers and importers of electronic goods will take over management of e-waste from consumers and local governments. Electronics importers and manufacturers are obligated by EPRA to assume full responsibility for the whole lifecycle of their products, from manufacturing to disposal. Establishing and financing collection networks, recycling centers, and appropriate e-waste disposal techniques are all part of this.
