Rising cost of packaging compliance

All producers have been affected to a greater or lesser extent by the recent volatility of PRN prices, especially those reliant on plastic and aluminium packaging. Naturally everyone wants to understand why this happened and what can be done to offset further increases.

While the reasons are manifold, the generally accepted wisdom is that PRN prices for the year ahead are likely to remain at or near current levels, so there has never been a better time to ensure your packaging specifications are up to date, so you don’t pay more than you should.

Producer Responsibility Reform

It is clear from DEFRA’s 2019 Consultation on reforming the Packaging Producer Responsibility system that big changes are on the way. All producers and stakeholders have been invited to put forward their ideas about how they think the new system should work. If you have not responded then now is the time to have your say.
