European Union (Packaging) Regulations 2014
The European Union (Packaging) Regulations came into effect on the 20th June 2014.
The regulations affect all producers, including manufacturers, importers,distributors, wholesalers and retailers who supply packaging to the Irish market.
All producers are obliged to separate packaging waste at source into specific waste streams (aluminium, fibreboard, glass, paper, plastic sheeting, steel and wool) and to arrange for its recovery, or return the used packaging to the supplier.
