Circular Economy Package - waste legislation and policy changes 2017


The Circular Economy Package was proposed by the European Commission in December 2015, and introduced changes to the Packaging, WEEE, Batteries and Waste Framework Directives.

Following the plenary vote on the legislative proposals on 14 March 2017, the package is now entering the Trilogue stage of negotiations between the European Commission, Parliament and Council.

This is a key priority for European policy makers and is set to lead decision making and national strategies on resource efficiency and waste management from 2018 onwards.

Some aspects of the package could significantly impact producer responsibility legislation in both the UK and abroad.

As waste and product legislation under the Circular Economy Package is taking shape this year, understanding its content, changes, trends and timelines is essential to companies affected by product take-back regimes.

Please join our International Compliance Product Manager, Fran Witthuhn, in this free 45 minute webinar covering:

  • Circular Economy Package (CEP): Current status update
  • Legislative proposals and recommendations for hazardous substances, repairability and minimum lifespan of products
  • Expected timeline for implementation, trends and effect on current regulations (WEEE, battery and packaging)
  • Brexit: potential impact on compliance management in the UK and abroad
  • International Compliance Management – how Ecosurety can help
  • Q&A

Who is it for?

This webinar is beneficial for those interested in European policy or responsible for assessing potential impacts of regulatory changes on their companies’ compliance.

Those businesses selling in or delivering to Europe will also benefit from an update on changes to national legislation and information on trends that could affect their operations in future.

What will I learn?

This webinar is designed to bring companies up to speed with the latest compliance developments, assessing the potential impacts and next steps for producers, as well as providing backgrounds, overviews and trends of national producer responsibility legislation across Europe.
