This webinar, part of IEMA Adapting to COVID-19 series, explored the potential impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Extended Producer Responsibility in the UK, specifically Packaging, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Batteries regulations.
Martin Hyde, Policy Leader, and Liz Wood, Sustainability Project Leader from Comply Direct, one of the largest producer compliance schemes in the UK provided an update on the short term and long-term impacts of the pandemic on regulation, enforcement and evidence markets.
This session is ideal for environmental management and sustainability practitioners with basic understanding of the EPR regulations in the UK.
Delegates will gain insight into the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on UK EPR, including:
- evidence markets (linked to compliance costs),
- potential impact on ongoing EPR reviews,
- reviews of WEEE and Batteries regulations which had been expected this year.
