The European Parliament & Council Directive 94/62/EC on packaging & packaging waste first came into force at the end of 1994. In the UK the directive is implemented by the producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste Regulations)
Companies with a turnover of over £2million and who use
or handle over 50tons of packaging a year are obligated to register.
Obligated companies have to recover & recycle specified tonnages
of packaging waste each year and to provide proof in the form
of PRN (Packaging Recovery Note) that recovery & recycling
has been achieved.
