Packaging Waste Obligations Data Collection Deadline

Packaging Waste Obligations Data Collection Deadline

3 Jul 2023

If you are obligated under the new Extended Producer Responsibilities (EPR) for packaging, you have a requirement to collate, upload and submit data by 1 October 2023. There are different obligations depending on how much packaging you supply and how you supply it in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. You can check your EPR requirements via the website.

Your initial timeline for collating your packaging data covers the period March 2023 – June 2023 (January 2023 – June 2023 if you have that data). You will then need to create an account, upload and finally submit your data.

In Wales the data regulations are expected to come into force on Monday 17 July 2023, with the first collating period starting from this date.

Organisations in Wales must also report their data from the start of January 2023 if they have it.
