We consulted on our proposals to reform the UK packaging producer responsibility system earlier this year. Based on the feedback we received and the strong support from respondents for the principles and outcomes proposed, we intend to progress these policy proposals and introduce an extended producer responsibility scheme for packaging in 2023. As is the case for the current system, the reformed system will target all packaging materials, including plastic.
