What your business needs to do
If your business is obligated under these Regulations, packaging must be designed and/ or used that conforms to the specific requirements in relation to weight and volume, recyclability and recoverability. The business must also adhere to the limits on heavy metal substances and the requirements for the minimisation of release of hazardous or noxious substances.
In addition, the business is required to retain evidence that any packaging used conforms with these Regulations. This evidence should be kept for four years, starting from the date that the packaging was first placed on the market and must be made available to an enforcement authority within 28 days of their request.
