Deadline Extended for Waste Tyre Reporting

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) has announced an extension for waste tyre reporting deadlines. This order was issued on May 17, 2024.

It may be recalled that the Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Amendment Rules, 2022, introduced an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program for waste tyres.

This program requires producers to file quarterly and annual reports on their waste tyre management activities.

The original deadline for filing these reports for the 2023-2024 financial year was April 30, 2024. Following industry requests, the MoEF&CC has extended this deadline to June 30, 2024.

Companies involved in waste tyre management now have an additional two months to submit their reports.

The EPR portal will also remain open for generating and transferring EPR certificates during this extended period.
