Appliances that are essential for both keeping food fresh and a cozy home are refrigerators. Indian Technical Standard CEEW2 governs refrigerator manufacture and quality standards in India. The aforementioned standards guarantee that refrigerators are engineered, manufactured, and evaluated to satisfy established quality standards, encompassing performance standards, energy efficiency, safety attributes, and conformity to Indian electrical norms.
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 refrigerator industry. Manufacturers adhering to these guidelines support national initiatives aimed at offering dependable and environmentally sustainable refrigeration solutions to individuals, companies, and sectors of the economy.
Note: Obtaining the EPR Registration Certificate is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers planning to introduce refrigerators into the Indian market.
EPR authorization is a crucial prerequisite for refrigerator makers. This authorization acts as a clear requirement, requiring refrigerator makers to assume liability for their goods for the duration of their useful lives. By doing this, it guarantees that these manufacturers support eco-friendly practices by actively taking part in and making contributions to the appropriate disposal, recycling, and sustainable management of refrigerators. Being necessary home appliances, refrigerators can have a big impact on the environment, particularly if they are not properly maintained as they age. Manufacturers bear the primary obligation for reducing this impact through EPR Authorization.
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.
