The Packaging Regulations

The Packaging Waste Regulations “The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 and Amendments” are a legal requirement, affecting a number of UK businesses and operating like a ‘tax’ on packaging.

Obligated individuals, or groups of companies within the UK, need to calculate the amount of packaging they handle and pay towards the cost of recycling this material when it enters the UK waste stream. Although they are called the Packaging Waste Regulations, in terms of how they affect your company they are not concerned with the way you dispose of your back door waste, they are concerned with the packaging you introduce into the UK as a result of your business activities.

As a Packaging Compliance Scheme, Kite ensures you comply with your legal requirement accurately and efficiently. We manage the entire packaging compliance process for you, providing an outstanding service level to minimise the work you need to do and to give you peace of mind.
