e-Waste Managment Policy
Kemtek is obliged by the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Regulations to register with the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and Environment (DFFE), as an importer of electronic equipment. Kemtek must also ensure that all identified products are covered by an EPR Scheme.
Under these EPR regulations, legislated for implementation from 5 November 2021, Kemtek is legally mandated to manage the products that we place on the market at end-of-life. To do this, we will sign up with registered Producer Responsibility Organisations (PRO’s) who will grow the downstream reuse and recycling of the products placed on the market, to achieve the published legislated targets.
Kemtek thus needs to determine the weight and dimensions of the electronic equipment imported and sourced locally and is turning to its principals for support in this matter. The types of packaging that accompany the products imported will also need to be determined and their weight contribution understood.
