Specialized lighting sources with a distinct yellowish hue and great energy efficiency are called low-pressure sodium lamps. Indian Technical Standard CEEW17 governs the manufacture and quality criteria for these lamps in India. By adhering to established quality norms, such as lighting efficiency, longevity, safety features, and compatibility with Indian electrical regulations, low-pressure sodium lamps are made sure to be.
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 lighting equipment industry. Manufacturers adhering to these standards support national initiatives aimed at offering enterprises, industries, and specialty lighting requirements effective and sustainable lighting solutions.
Note: In order to sell low-pressure sodium lights in India, manufacturers must obtain the necessary EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR Authorization is a testament to a manufacturer's dedication to using environmentally friendly techniques for the duration of these lamps' useful lives. When these lamps approach the end of their useful lives, they set up efficient recycling and appropriate disposal procedures, guaranteeing that priceless materials are recovered and put to better use. When a producer of low-pressure sodium lamps obtains EPR authorization, it is an indication of their commitment to reducing electronic waste, preserving resources, and promoting the circular economy ideas in the lighting sector.
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.
