What fees are involved when I register as a packaging producer?

The costs of registering as a packaging producer vary depending on whether you choose to register through a packaging compliance scheme or direct with the Environment Agency, as a full producer or small producer, as a group or individually or if you have any registered subsidiaries who handle packaging.

If you register through a scheme you will pay a scheme membership fee and Environment Agency (EA) fees.

If you choose to register direct with the Environment Agency, you will have no scheme membership fee, but you will need to allocate the time required for staff to prepare and complete all the required documentation and legal requirements along with the knowledge of the National Packaging Waste Database (NPWD) system.

If you have any registered subsidiary companies that handle packaging, you will also need to consider these, and additional EA fees may apply.

Once the registration process is complete, your packaging obligation has to be met by purchasing Packaging Recovery Notes (PRNs). The ‘evidence’ of recovery or recycling is known as Packaging Recovery Notes (PRNs).

PRNs are certificates of evidence that prove a tonne of packaging waste has been recovered and reprocessed or exported. They are a commodity traded on the open market, which means their prices fluctuate.

If you are a member of a packaging compliance scheme, the purchasing of PRNs is arranged for you and because schemes buy in bulk, they can get the best price.
