With the ability to transmit information over great distances, fax machines, often referred to as facsimile machines, have become an indispensable tool for communication in offices and other corporate settings. Indian Technical Standard ITEW10 governs the manufacture and quality requirements for facsimile machines in India. These guidelines guarantee that facsimile machines are created, manufactured, and tested in accordance with industry standards for quality, which cover things like safety features, performance requirements, and suitability for Indian office settings.
In addition to being required by law, manufacturers view ITEW10 compliance as a sign of their dedication to providing fax solutions that are safe, dependable, and of the highest calibre. Following these guidelines can help a manufacturer gain more credibility with customers, build consumer trust, and open up new markets for their products in the cutthroat office equipment industry.
Note: Facsimile manufacturers are obliged to obtain the mandatory EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR Authorization is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers of facsimile machines, underlining the significance of responsible waste management and environmental stewardship in the electronics industry. By obtaining EPR Authorization, facsimile manufacturers demonstrate their commitment to minimizing the environmental impact of their products. This commitment entails ensuring the proper disposal and recycling of electronic waste, contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
The Extended Producers Responsibility Authorization, or EPRA, programme is essential for addressing the growing problem of managing electronic waste, 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 centres, collection systems, and appropriate e-waste disposal techniques. To decrease the negative effects of electronic gadgets on the environment, EPRA encourages manufacturers to incorporate easier recycling into the design of their goods.
