If your business produces, uses or sells packaged goods, it may be classed as an obligated packaging producer if it:

  • handles 50 tonnes or more of packaging materials annually

What do we mean by ‘handling’?

Handling includes any of the following activities:

  • Packaging conversion – converting raw materials into packaging
  • Packing/filling – putting goods into packaging or packaging around goods
  • Selling – supplying packaged goods to the end-user
  • Importing – imported packaging, including raw material to be used as packaging
  • Service provider – businesses that supply packaging by hiring or lending
