Phablets, which blend the functions of tablets and smartphones, are becoming more and more popular due to their adaptability. Indian Technical Standard ITEW20 governs the manufacture and quality criteria for phablets in India. With respect to performance standards, safety features, and compatibility with Indian technological environments, these standards guarantee that phablets are created, manufactured, and tested in accordance with acknowledged quality benchmarks.
In addition to being required by law, manufacturers view ITEW20 compliance as a sign of their dedication to providing phablet solutions that are safe, dependable, and of the highest caliber. Following these guidelines can help a manufacturer gain more credibility with consumers, build consumer trust, and open up new markets for their products in the cutthroat mobile device industry.
Note: The required EPR Registration Certificate must be obtained by makers of smartphones.
The issuance of an EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) authorization is a mandatory prerequisite for phablet manufacturers, signifying their dedication to conscientious electronic waste management and environmental sustainability. This accreditation guarantees that these manufacturers take an active role in managing their products sustainably, disposing of them properly, and recycling them in accordance with environmentally responsible standards. The ability to fulfill and surpass strict environmental norms and laws is granted to tablet producers by EPR Authorization. It shows that they are actively involved in cutting down on electronic waste and preserving important resources.
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.
