Defra offer two webinar dates to explain the 2023 data requirements for EPR

Good afternoon,

The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) packaging reforms will start from 01 January 2023, industry will be required to start collecting data on packaging waste.

This is a requirement under the Collection and Packaging Reforms (CPR) programme, which includes three projects: Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR); Deposit Return Scheme (DRS); and consistency in household and business recycling (referred to as Consistency).

These projects collectively aim to achieve a reduction in littering of packaging; reduction in landfill, incineration waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; elimination of avoidable plastic waste; increase in municipal recycling, a reduction in emissions from the waste sector; and smarter recyclable packaging choices by industry. Each reform has a different scope.

EPR is being delivered in phases and the first phase begins in all four nations from 01 January 2023.

We would like to support industry by taking you through the requirements from 01 January 2023; what information you need to collect, what you will need to do, when you will need to do it by, and how.

We will be presenting this information through a webinar and open a question-and-answer session at the end for you to ask our panel of experts any questions you may have on data collection. Please find two links below, you can register for your preferred webinar date and time here:

Wednesday 23 November 2022 14:00 – 15:00
