DEFRA and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills are currently undertaking a review of the producer responsibility regimes to improve the coherence between the different regulations, and to reduce burdens on businesses which have to deal with more than one regime.

A consultation on amendments to the packaging regulations, which will take forward the ‘coherence issues’ and other specific packaging-related issues, is planned for this autumn. As part of the process, we will be considering whether improvements might usefully be made to the packaging recovery note/packaging export recovery note system.
