Packaging Compliance made easy
Can you explain the Regulations simply?
Most SGF members will be aware of the Producer Responsibility Obligation (Packaging Waste) Regulations, which require companies with turnover exceeding £2 million and who supply or import more than over 50 tonnes of packaging to register with an appropriate agency.
Obligated companies have the option of joining one of the many approved Compliance or they can register directly with their local Environment Agency. In both cases they will be required to submit an annual report (also known as a Data Form) providing detailed information about the packaging handled during the previous calendar year.
Can I get help with this?
