What are my responsibilities as a packaging producer?

There are three main responsibilities for those businesses obligated under the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations:

– Businesses must register with the Environment Agency (EA), either directly or through an approved packaging compliance scheme such as ours. The producer must pay a fee to the Environment Agency and submit packaging data for the obligated year, either to the Environment Agency or to a compliance scheme.

– Businesses must take reasonable steps to recover and recycle specific tonnages of packaging waste each year.

– By 31 January, businesses must certify that they have recovered and recycled the necessary tonnage of packaging waste for the obligated year.
