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 (email@example.com) by Friday 9 October 2020 at 10h00.
A meeting will be held at the MCCI soon to discuss comments received from Members and finalise the MCCI’s submission to the Ministry.
