EPR Compliance, EPR obligations, e-commerce

If you run an e-commerce business within the borders of the EU, you will have to consider many different regulations and obligations. Some of those regulations have their origins in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). As an entrepreneur, it is very complicated for you to keep track of every regulation and legal development that is relevant to your business. Especially if you are active in more than one country market and distribute your products internationally.

Your individual EPR compliance check gives you an overview of your obligations

With our EPR compliance check, you can now learn about the basic requirements in the country markets you are distributing your products to – easy, fast, and from anywhere online. 

Simply enter the required information and you will receive our report via email or will be connected with an expert from within our group of companies for further consulting.

We will then provide you with detailed insights into your EPR obligations for packaging in Europe, to give you a comprehensive overview of which regulations you need to consider.

It is very important that you deal with your obligations. Because if you do not fulfill the requirements to which you are subject, you risk considerable sanctions. Read more about possible consequences, when not following EPR regulations.

It will become increasingly important in the future as more and more potentially relevant requirements are added on international markets. The principle of Extended Producer Responsibility already applies in many countries and European directives such as the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) may bring further complexity for manufacturers and retailers.

In times when climate change and pollution are among the biggest challenges for our planet, those regulations are important tools to keep valuable resources in the cycle. Only then we can ensure a functioning circular economy.
