who is obligated?
Am I Obligated?

Companies are affected by these Regulations if they meet the following criteria:
  • Have a UK “presence”
  • An annual turnover above £2 million or equivalent
  • Handling more than 50 tonnes of packaging
If you are unsure please Contact Us for help.

As far as these Regulations are concerned your obligation has nothing to do with the volume of waste generated at or removed from your site, whether that waste is recycled or sent to landfill.

Your obligation is solely dependent on the weight of packaging you are introducing into the UK system.

Groups of companies will be obligated if their aggregate turnover and packaging handled meets the threshold test listed above. Subsidiaries can either register collectively as a group, or individually.
