The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on May 24, 2019, issues notice for withdrawal of Producer Responsibility Organizations (PROS). The guidelines and application form for recognition of PROs had been framed by CPCB to facilitate the producers meet their EPR responsibility as per Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2018. The Clause 9(1) of PWM Rules, 2018 specifies that the producers shall wok out modalities for waste collection system based on extended producer responsibility and involving state UDDs within six months. Henceforth, the CPCB has decided to discontinue the scheme for recognition of PROs with CPCB and the producers and other stakeholders can plan their EPR implementation as per requirement of PWM Rules, 2018. The aforesaid guidelines will be no longer necessary and hence ordered withdrawn with immediate effect.
