The Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change (MoEFCC) has introduced modifications to these rules to incorporate provisions in Hazardous Waste Regulations.’

CPCB has established an interim process for generating EPR End Product credits (Certificates) by Recyclers and transferring them to Producers via the portal to fulfill ‘Managing Waste Tires and EPR Credits in Hazardous Waste Regulations.’ Recyclers must maintain records of raw material procurement, end product sales, and PR Certificate transactions in Excel sheets for EPR Certificate generation and transfer on the EPR Portal. Credit of EPR certificates are traceable for transparency of the entire operation. Detailed instructions are provided in Annexure – I.

CPCB is facilitating this interim arrangement to assist in meeting EPR obligations, with producers and recyclers having sole responsibility for any malpractices or violations related to ‘Managing Waste Tires and EPR Credits in Hazardous Waste Regulations.’ More details are available in the attached document.”
