1 Introduction to E-Waste (Management & Handling) Rules, 2011 and Guidelines By Anand Kumar Senior Environmental Engineer Central Pollution Control Board (Ministry of Environment and Forests, Govt. of India)

2 Initial Interventions  “Guidelines for Environmentally Sound Management of E-waste” notified by Government in March  E-waste included in the schedule IV of the HAZARDOUS WASTE Rules, on 24 th September, 2008 Implies that the generators of e-waste has to give this waste only to a registered recyclers who has the environmentally sound facilities for dismantling & recycling of e-waste

3 The E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011 Notified in May 2011 and Became effective from May 2012 RoHS Provisions will become effective from May 2014

4 E-Waste Management and Handling Rules, 2011  Six Chapters, Three Schedule and Five Forms Chapter 1 – Has definitions of various terms Chapter 2 – Responsibilities of Producers, Collection Centers, Dismantler, Recycler and Bulk Consumer Chapter 3 - Procedure for seeking Authorization & Registration Chapter 4 - Storage of E-Waste Chapter 5 - RoHS Chapter 6 – Duties of Regulatory Authorities, Annual Report from Producers, Collection Centers, Dismantlers Recyclers, Transportation, Accident Reporting Schedule – I : List of Equipment, Schedule – II : Exemptions list for RoHS Schedule – III: Duties of Regulatory Authorities

5 Objectives of E-Waste Rules  Minimize illegal recycling / recovery operations  Environmentally Safe & Sound Recycling by channelizing E-waste to registered E-waste recyclers  Extended Responsibilities to producers to manage a system of E-waste collection/take back and channelizing to a registered dismantler/recycler.  Responsibilities to Urban Local Bodies for orphan products and for waste found mixed with MSW  To Create an E-waste collection channelization system  Reduce Hazardous substances in Electrical and Electronic components

6 Important definitions  E-waste means waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded;  Electrical and electronic equipment means equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro- magnetic fields to be fully functional;  E-waste means waste electrical and electronic equipment, whole or in part or rejects from their manufacturing and repair process, which are intended to be discarded;  Electrical and electronic equipment means equipment which is dependent on electrical currents or electro- magnetic fields to be fully functional;
