Producer responsibility requirements and deadlines can vary from member state to member state. Have you stopped and thought recently about if the producer responsibility regulations which affect you here in the UK may impact you in Europe? 

Here at ecosurety, packaging compliance is something we think of all-year round. It doesn’t end in April once we have completed the submission to the Environment Agency on our members’ behalf. There’s far too much going on!

So although you may have put it to bed until next January there are many projects we are undertaking throughout the year, and it is only courteous to share these with you to find out if you are affected too.

It’s all go in our Bristol office at the moment, as we are currently gearing up for the Irish packaging submission deadline for H1 in August. Training on the regulations in Ireland, completing our members’ data submissions and submitting data to Repak (the packaging scheme in the Republic of Ireland) are just a few ways we can help you with your packaging compliance across the Irish sea.

Producer responsibility requirements and deadlines can vary from member state to member state. So, as mentioned, in Ireland there are half-yearly packaging submissions and only one packaging scheme to submit these too; the data is required in a slightly different format, and producers must submit completed figures into their template online. Of course this is just one country in the EU.

Have you stopped and thought recently about if the producer responsibility regulations which affect you here in the UK may impact you in Europe? As they come from an EU Directive, it’s worth being sure that you’re not out of compliance elsewhere if you operate in any of the other member states.

We know that for lots of people, compliance is not the highest point on the agenda. Which is why we are happy to keep you informed, let you know what we’re up to and be on-hand to discuss anything you might think of at a later date.

We have lots of experience in completing Irish packaging submissions for our member’s, as well as undertaking pan-European research projects, so take a moment to think if this is something you need help with. If you think it might be get in touch for a chat.
