Textiles Compliance

Is your business ready for textiles Extended Producer Responsibility Regulations?

The European Parliament is moving towards a sustainable textile industry by supporting Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation for textiles.

Once approved, this legislation will require Extended Producer Responsibility for textiles schemes to be set up in each EU country within 18 months. Many countries may choose to implement systems sooner.

Question Mark

Will your business have obligations under Textile EPR Regulations?

It is expected, but not yet confirmed, that your business will have a textile waste obligation if:

  • It is a textile producer, importer, or distributor that distance sells
  • Its annual turnover exceeds €2 million, AND
  • It has 10 or more employees
