The Environment Agency (EA), serving as the regulatory body in England, and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), responsible for regulatory matters in Scotland, have jointly issued Regulatory Position Statements (RPS). These statements confirm that no legal enforcement will be taken as long as packaging data is submitted by May 31st 2024.
These statements mean that obligated producers no longer have legal requirements to submit their Extended Producer Responsibility for Packaging, packaging data by the 1st of October 2023 (for January to June 2023 period) and the 1st of April 2024 (for the July to December 2023 time period). However, both datasets will now be required by the 31st of May 2024.
