The Indian Technical Standard LIW2 is applicable to devices that use electronic and electrical components. This standard specifies the precise technical criteria, quality standards, safety precautions, and testing methods that Indian manufacturers must adhere to when making such equipment.
These guidelines support India's overarching objectives of fostering innovation, safety, and quality in the production of electrical and electronic equipment. Manufacturers who follow LIW2 provide a valuable contribution to the country's technological advancements, product safety improvements, and support of businesses that depend on such equipment.
Note: Obtaining the required EPR Registration Certificate is mandatory for manufacturers of equipment with electrical and electronic components.
EPR authorization emphasizes how producers must make sure that their products are disposed of, recycled, and managed sustainably. This helps to cut down on electronic waste and promote sustainable practices. It is in line with international initiatives to reduce technological waste, conserve resources, and promote a more sustainable future for everybody.
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.
