    Guiding Principles for EPR

    • The Uniform EPR framework is Brand agnostic and Geography neutral.
    • Spends incurred on awareness campaigns and capacity building are not considered towards compliance of EPR obligation (except fee based model where Government use the funds for the purpose). This can be spent under CSR budget.
    • The EPR obligation for MLP shall be higher than the normal recyclable plastic. The Producer, Importer, Brand Owners (PIBOs) shall have to pay higher cost for EPR of MLP.
    • Consistent with the Rules, the program will also allow and provide support for the management of plastics through a tiered system under Plastic Credit model:
    • > Mechanical recycling systems (preferred option as it’s holding the material at its highest value)
      > Alternative uses such as road construction
      > The recovery of energy from low-grade plastics through cement kilns, waste to energy plants, etc.
    • Recycling targets should cover all post-consumer packaging waste (including household waste).
    • The Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) is required to submit an EPR plan to the state Pollution Control Board (PCB)/Urban Local Body (ULB). Once approved, the PRO is “authorized” to discharge the EPR responsibility of their Brand owners or users of packaging material and importer members.
    • All authorized PROs must submit to the National and State-level PCBs their annual reports (third-party audited) and make public which Brand owners or users of packaging material and importers have signed up.
    • Penalties shall be imposed on the PIBO by the governing authorities for the portion of waste they were not able to collect against the set target. This money shall be used for creating infrastructure for plastic waste management.

    • Assigning Responsibility

    • Providing financial incentive to collect, process and recycle the plastic waste
    • Also to work on modalities for plastic waste collection system based on EPR and involving State Urban Development Department

      Frequently Asked Question

      1What is Extended Producers Responsibility ?
      Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a responsibility imposed on producers, manufacturers, and importers under The Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016 for environmentally sound disposal/recycling of post-consumer waste.
      2Process of Extending Producer Responsibility Implementation
      1. The first step is to register with the CPCB/SPCB by submitting the required documents, which include an action plan, agreement, certificates, and licences, among other things. 2. The next phase involves an authorised waste management agency collecting the agreed-upon volume of post-consumer plastic waste from the designated location over a one-year period and recycling or disposing of it securely in accordance with CPCB/SPCB standards. 3. In the form of appropriate papers, the waste collection agency will provide evidence of waste collection operations. 5. On behalf of PIBOM, a quarterly report will be submitted to CPCB. 6. After the activity is completed, the agency will submit a final report to PIBOM.
      3Waste Disposal Methods Under EPR
      Waste collected through the EPR is transported to the nearest disposal or recycling facility and processed using one of the methods listed below. 1. Used as fuel in Cement Kiln 2. WTE Recovery 3. Recycling
