The Ministry of Environment, Solid Waste Management and Climate Change will be introducing a new Environment Protection (Extended Producer Responsibility for Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations. 


The aim of these regulations is to provide for the legal conditions for the implementation of a collective Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme for electrical and electronic equipment.  The obligations of stakeholders, including producers, distributors, recyclers and exporters, have been defined.


The Ministry has circulated:


·       A presentation with the main features of the new legislation, and 


·       The draft EPR Regulations


Members are invited to submit their comments on the proposed legislation to Miss Heba Peerun ( by Friday 9 October 2020 at 10h00.
