Training on Environment, Health & Safety Legislation in India

This 2 days course is designed to equip professionals from the electronic industry with knowledge on the Environment, Health and Safety Legislation in India.


Gartner has recently released a report claiming that the total electronic equipment production in India will reach $32 billion in 2011, compared to $14 billion in 2006, marking a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18 percent. This growth is being bolstered by the rapidly growing demand for electronic equipment in India. In 2006, the consumer electronic equipment segment held the number one position with 39 percent share of the overall electronic equipment
Production in India.

For decades, safeguarding the environment, keeping step with the “footprint” of industrial activity, has been high on the agenda of policy makers, industry and consumers alike. Concerns about product-environment symbiosis run from chemical, electromagnetic and acoustical emissions to recyclability and end-of life management.

Worldwide, various legislative measures seek to reduce the environmental impact of products. For example restrictions of substances and chemicals as well as End of Life management are legislated in Europe and other countries and regions around the world have drafted similar legislation. Also, the European Commission has proposed a Directive related to Design for Environment. Environmental concerns are addressed also in a variety of “eco-labels” used throughout the world to signify the environmental friendliness of products.

The global environmental NGOs have started a campaign to make electrical and electronic products free of toxic components. They have approached the Ministry of Information Technology and Ministry of Environment and Forests for forming strong legislations regarding the RoHS compliant products. Efforts are also underway to convince the government to go for environment friendly legislation and frame legislation based on Extended Product Responsibility (EPR).
