Microwave ovens are now considered essential kitchen tools because they provide rapid and effective heating and cooking options for a wide range of foods. Indian Technical Standard LSEEW9 governs the manufacture and quality criteria for microwave ovens in India. It describes the precise technical requirements, quality standards, safety precautions, and testing processes that microwave oven manufacturers need to follow.
The aforementioned requirements guarantee that microwave ovens are created, manufactured, and evaluated to satisfy established quality standards, encompassing cooking effectiveness, longevity, safety attributes, and adherence to Indian electrical regulations. Following these guidelines can help manufacturers build their brand, gain the trust of customers, and get their products noticed in the cutthroat kitchen appliance industry.
Note: Manufacturers must obtain the required EPR Registration Certificate in order to bring microwaves or microwave ovens to the Indian market.
Manufacturers who have earned an EPR authorization demonstrate their commitment to responsible appliance disposal, recycling, and environmentally friendly management practices. Manufacturers who have obtained EPR Authorization place a high value on sustainable design principles and energy efficiency, making sure that their microwaves and microwave ovens meet strict regulations.
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.
