Source: Toxics Link, Date: , 2017

State Pollution Control Boards have a key role in the implementation of E-waste Rules 2016 and will be principle agency responsible for enforcement of these Rules. Hence, it is important that they understand the framework and plan out the possible measures to make the Rules effective. In order to help SPCBs and other agencies comprehend the Rules well and map out possible steps, Toxics Link organized a capacity building workshop on 3 rd and 4 th March, 2017 in Bengaluru. Done in collaboration with Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, the workshop had active participation from officers of SPCBs from Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana and Kerala, civil society organizations and municipalities. The two day capacity building program included field visit to a TSDF (Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility) and an authorized E-waste Recycling unit. The participants felt that the workshop was timely and will help them in making the Rules powerful.
