EA Publishes updated packaging Technical Interpretations document

17 MARCH 2021

For those caught up in the packaging regulations, the EA's 'Positions and technical interpretations: producer responsibility for packaging' is an essential guide to what is classed as a producer and what is classed as obligated packaging. It is also useful for reprocessors and exporters to know what PRNs can be claimed on.

This is updated periodically with the latest version having just been published. It is difficult to identify the changes over the previous version in the main text, but the changes include more detail on incapacity, the definition of qualifying packaging, the registration process for producers etc. There are also additions to the FAQ on grey areas as to whether they are packaging or not.
