Common personal care appliances for drying and styling hair are hair dryers. Indian Technical Standard LSEEW31 governs the manufacture and quality requirements for hair dryers in India. It describes the precise technical requirements, quality standards, safety precautions, and testing protocols that hair dryer manufacturers need to follow.
The aforementioned requirements guarantee that hair dryers are created, manufactured, and examined to fulfill acknowledged quality standards, including functionality, security, and adherence to Indian electrical regulations. By adhering to these criteria, manufacturers support national initiatives aimed at promoting personal care appliances that are safe and effective, improving consumer satisfaction and wellbeing.
Note: Hair dryer producers are required by law to have an EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR authorization is an indication of a manufacturer's dedication to making sure that their products are disposed of and recycled properly, both of which are essential for the sustainability of the environment. Manufacturers are held accountable for taking an active role in the appropriate disposal, recycling, and ecologically responsible management of their electronic equipment.
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.
