Static Author Display NameRisk Management

Currently, organisations that handle 50 or more tonnes of packaging or packaging materials in a calendar year (i.e. January to December) and have an annual turnover of more than £2 million must register as a packaging producer, meet recycling obligations and provide evidence of compliance.

The government recently announced that with effect from 1st January 2023 these requirements will be extended to include organisations with an annual turnover of £1 million and which are responsible for over 25 tonnes of packaging in a calendar year.
