Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

Extended Producer Responsibility 

What the policy means for your business in 2024


What is EPR?

EPR is a recent regulation passed in the UK, gradually replacing existing packaging waste regulations.

This legislation mandates that a range of organizations, including manufacturers, bear the full cost of pollution caused by their products.

Packaging producers are required to cover all expenses associated with the recycling of the packaging they introduce to the market, including collection, processing, and recycling.



Are You a Producer? Check If You Need to Take Action


If your company is registered in the UK, you are considered a producer if you engage in one or more of the following activities:


  • Supplying packaged goods with your own brand to the UK market.

  • Placing goods in unbranded packaging when supplying products.

  • Importing goods with packaging.

  • Operating an online store.

  • Using or lending reusable packaging.

  • Providing empty packaging.

If You Are a Seller


As a seller, it’s crucial to adhere to all regulations and standards governing product sales.

For Amazon sellers, strict compliance with the Safe-T and Compliance Policy for Selling Products is essential.

Understanding EPR can help regulate your sales practices and mitigate the risk of product blocking or penalties.

Back in 2023, Amazon already took on the responsibility of reporting sales for non-UK sellers.

However, starting from April 1, 2024, Amazon will handle the obligation of collecting and remitting payments, while retaining the right to levy ecological fees.




If You Are a Producer


As a producer, your classification is determined by your annual turnover and the quantity of packaging supplied or imported annually.

Whether you are a small or large producer, creating an account, collecting and storing relevant data, and reporting national/regional data are essential steps.

However, as a large producer, you are required to report data every six months.
