How do I know if my business is obligated under the packaging regulations?

Businesses that produce or handle more than 50 tonnes of packaging in a year AND have a turnover of more than £2 million are obligated under the regulations.

Obligated businesses must meet annual recycling targets related to the packaging type and weight for which the business is responsible. If a business belongs to a group of companies, these requirements apply to the total amount of packaging handled by the group and the group’s total annual turnover.

A business must provide data for the weight of packaging handled in the previous year by material type. Packaging targets are then applied and the company must obtain ‘evidence’ that an equivalent weight has been recycled over the year.
