The ability to effectively manage and maintain target temperatures makes thermostats essential parts of heating and cooling systems. Indian Technical Standard LSEEW24 governs thermostat manufacture and quality standards in India. It describes the precise technical requirements, quality standards, safety precautions, and testing protocols that thermostat manufacturers need to follow.
These criteria are in line with India's overarching goals of encouraging energy-efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems, developing the HVAC industry's technological capabilities, and guaranteeing that consumers and companies can obtain dependable and secure equipment. Manufacturers adhering to these criteria support national initiatives aimed at offering sustainable and effective temperature control systems that enhance comfort and save energy.
Note: Manufacturers of thermostats are required to obtain EPR authorization.
Manufacturers who have been granted EPR authorization bear a heavy burden of obligation for the appropriate disposal, recycling, and ecologically responsible management of their thermostat devices. A manufacturer's dedication to ethical and sustainable product management is demonstrated by their 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.
