Joining Valpak will give you access to a variety of services which will help you with packaging data preparation and submission, audit planning, purchase of Packaging Waste Recovery Notes (PRNs), regulation updates and reporting to the regulator for annual packaging compliance certification.
You will have access to FREE Packaging Data Workshops and, if your organisation discards of packaging waste, you may be able to offset some of your compliance bill via our Members' Compliance Evidence Policy (MCEP) service. We will also take on your legal obligation and, if you are using the Green Dot symbol, we will waive your UK Green Dot licence fee.
More Valpak membership benefits can be found on our 'How Valpak Can Help' web page.
Valpak is required, as part of our operational plan, to spend time checking our members' data submissions prior to submitting this data to the relevant agencies. Submitting your data promptly each year, by the 28 February, gives Valpak necessary time to check your data submission and to ensure that any amendments required are made before the deadline.

Valpak does appreciate that in certain circumstances members do have a problem with obtaining data of sufficient quality by this date. If this is the case please call one of our technical advisors on 08450 682 572.
