Who needs a UK licence?
Packaging placed onto the UK market, which displays the Green Dot symbol, must be licensed.
It is not mandatory to display the Green Dot
on packaging in the UK because we currently
use the PRN system to help recover and
recycle packaging waste. However, if a
business exports to other European countries
it may be required to display the Green Dot
on its packaging to demonstrate compliance.
Many organisations choose to purchase a UK
Green Dot licence so they are not burdened
with the time and costs of printing two sets
of packaging i.e. one without the Green Dot
for the UK and another with the Green Dot
for goods exported.
