“India is not in favour of specific exemption for specific sector till the time any of such import of used electrical and electronic equipment for root cause analysis, repair or refurbishment is compliant with provision of re-export within one year of import; or if to be retained in the importing country than necessary permission from competent authority in the importing country, is in place, and all the conditions as in para 31 (b) are followed, if applicable. Further, the management of hazardous wastes resulting from failure analysis, repair and refurbishment operations should focus on environmentally sound management and the transboundary movement of such hazardous wastes should be responsibility of the exporter, in case of the non-availability of environmentally sound management facility in the importing country.”
