The EU Commission has released a proposal to repeal the EU Packaging Waste Directive. The draft regulation aims to reduce per capita packaging waste by 15% compared to 2018, make all packaging recyclable by 2030 and introduce mandatory targets for recycling, the use of recycled plastics, reuse and refill and deposit and return.
Obligations under Extended Producer Responsibility are clarified in the proposal with additional requirements applicable from 1 January 2030. However, it is advisable to prepare for the new regulation by undertaking a comprehensive appraisal of packaging use which includes:
The draft regulation also includes requirements for standardised labelling of packaging, consumer information, conformity assessment and green public procurement.
The proposed regulation is the latest EU measure to promote a circular economy. The Commission’s proposal will now be considered by the European Parliament and Council.
