What is EPR ?

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach under which producers are given a significant responsibility financial and/or physical - for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer products.

EPR is the responsibility of a producer for the environmentally sound management of the product until the end of its life.

It may include implementing a take-back system by setting up collection centres and having agreed arrangements with the concerned parties either individually or through a recognized Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO).
