Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a reform of the existing UK Packaging Waste Regulations, and is a new piece of legislation which introduces greater responsibility onto producers for supplying packaging material on the market. Ultimately, this will require them to pay the full net costs of the collection, sorting, recycling, and disposal of household packaging.
However, producers will NOT have a financial obligation associated with their EPR data submission for 2024. Producers affected by the 2007 regulations will have a PRN (packaging recovery note) financial obligation based on their 2023 calendar year packaging data, to be presented in the data tables format in 2024 as per previous years.
Additionally, under EPR, a lower threshold has been introduced to integrate smaller producers (small organisations) into the packaging compliance system.

To be obligated under the regulations as a large organisation, businesses must meet or exceed two thresholds:
- A turnover of more than £2 million, and;
- Exceed 50 tonnes or more of packaging supplied to the market annually.
If you meet the above thresholds, your business will be obligated by the 2007 packaging waste regulations, and possibly EPR requirements also. Get in touch to determine your obligations!
To be obligated under the regulations as a small organisation, businesses must meet or exceed two thresholds:
- A turnover of more than £1 million, and:
- Exceed 25 tonnes or more of packaging supplied to the market annually.
Producers that meet or exceed this lower threshold are only obligated for reporting their packaging data, they have no financial obligation like those obligated by the higher threshold.
