Scanners are necessary tools that transform analog documents and pictures into digital formats for effective information manipulation and archiving. Indian Technical Standard ITEW21 governs the manufacture and quality criteria for scanners in India. By adhering to established quality norms for performance, safety features, and compatibility with Indian technological environments, these standards guarantee that scanners are created, manufactured, and tested to fulfill requirements.
In addition to being required by law, manufacturers view ITEW21 compliance as a sign of their dedication to providing high-quality, dependable, and secure scanning solutions. In the competitive scanning device market, these standards can boost a manufacturer's standing, encourage consumer trust, and open up new product opportunities.
Note: It is required for scanner manufacturers to obtain the EPR Registration Certificate.
EPR authorization is a crucial prerequisite for scanner makers, demonstrating their dedication to sustainable practices and ecologically conscious electronic waste management. With respect to environmentally responsible activities, this permission requires these manufacturers to take an active role in the appropriate disposal, recycling, and sustainable management of their products. Manufacturers of scanners are empowered by EPR Authorization to both meet and surpass strict environmental norms and laws. 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.
