Extended Producer Responsibility

In addressing the e-waste issues, Malaysia will introduce the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programme. EPR is a product and waste management system of which manufacturers are responsible for the environmentally safe management of their products (take-back, recycling and final disposal) when they are no longer useful or discarded.

In order to complement the EPR initiatives in Malaysia, MCMC as the regulator for the communication and multimedia industry has initiated an industry joint recycling programme on discarded mobile devices. Mobile e-Waste: Old Phone, New life is MCMC's response to the Resolution 79 adopted in World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA 12) in November 2012. Resolution 79 invites its Member States to take all necessary measures to handle and control e-waste in order to mitigate the hazards which arise from used telecommunication/ICT equipment.
