Update on EPR guidelines

June 15th, 2020

The Waste Framework Directive, which was revised in summer 2018, obliges the European Commission to develop guidelines on extended producer responsibility (EPR) schemes in order to harmonise requirements among member states.

A study by the consulting firm Eunomia, which was published last month, is the basis for developing these guidelines.

The study's recommendations cover the following aspects: necessary costs, fee modulation, equal treatment, and tackling free-riding.

Landbell Group company, European Recycling Platform, has actively contributed to the stakeholder process and will continuously engage in the upcoming preparation of the guidelines by the European Commission.
