What are my options for registering as a packaging producer?

The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations state that if a company or group exceeds £2m in turnover during their financial year AND handles more than 50 tonnes of packaging in a year, they are deemed a producer of packaging and are required to register with the Environment Agency (EA)

This can be a combined registration for the company group or individually for the parts that handle packaging. Businesses can join a producer compliance scheme and pay an annual membership fee or register direct with the Environment Agency (EA).

If you register with a producer compliance scheme, they will guide you through the process, assist with documentation, provide expert advice and support with EA correspondence. Your data is verified before it’s submitted to the EA and your scheme will handle your online submission using the National Packaging Waste Database (NPWD).

The scheme will also purchase your obligated PRNs (Packaging Recovery Notes), giving you the best price because the scheme buys in bulk.
