Draft Legislation:

This is a draft item of legislation. This draft has since been made as a UK Statutory Instrument: The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 No. 1857

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/871) (the “2007 Regulations”), which implement Article 6(1) of the European Parliament and Council Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste (OJ No L 365, 31.12.1994, p 10). The 2007 Regulations, in particular provisions in Schedule 2 to those Regulations, were amended by the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (S.I. 2012/3082) (the “2012 Regulations”).

Regulation 2 amends paragraph 3(4) of Schedule 2 to the 2007 Regulations (as inserted by the 2012 Regulations) by substituting an amended formula for the calculation of the amount of glass packaging waste that a producer must recycle by re-melt. The amended formula ensures that the glass re-melt target is applied to a producer’s glass recycling obligation.

These Regulations were notified in draft to the European Commission in accordance with Directive 98/34/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations and of rules on Information Society services (OJ No L 24, 21.7.1998, p 37).

A full impact assessment was prepared for the 2012 Regulations; no separate assessment has been carried out for this instrument as no further impact on the private, voluntary or public sectors is foreseen.
