European Recycling Platform to offer packaging compliance services


WEEE and batteries compliance scheme European Recycling Platform (ERP) has had its application approved to operate a packaging compliance scheme by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

From 2013, ERP will offer producers packaging compliance in addition to its current suite of WEEE and batteries compliance.

It is the only compliance scheme to offer pan-European compliance for WEEE and batteries, and will now offer UK packaging compliance also.

ERP UK managing director Scott Butler said: “It’s great news that we’ve been approved as a packaging compliance scheme.

“We’re delighted to be able to offer our current members the full range of compliance and we hope as many producers as possible will take the opportunity to move their compliance under one roof.”

ERP president and chief executive Umberto Raiteri added: “Being able to offer our customers a new compliance service will allow ERP to reinforce its presence in the UK market, while across Europe we continue to grow, offering extended services in more countries as the only multi-country and multi-product compliance scheme.”
