Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)


Starting from July 1, 2023, producers and manufacturers in Hungary will take on the responsibility of managing waste costs for specific products, including packaging material, electrical and electronic equipment, and batteries. Register with the National Waste Management Authority, submit quantity reports, and pay quarterly fees to MOHU to comply with this new regulation.

There have been changes made to the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program in Spain, which now holds producers accountable for the expenses related to waste management for certain products. This includes light packaging, paper cardboard, glass containers, batteries and accumulators, out-of-use tires, and waste electrical and electronic equipment.
