Netherlands EPR packaging obligation

If you sell products with packaging materials in the Netherlands, you need to comply with the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations. This means you have to register with the Packaging Waste Fund, report the quantity of packaging you bring or remove from the market, and pay a yearly contribution to the fund. You also have to follow the rules on single-use plastics and carrier bags. These regulations aim to reduce packaging waste and promote recycling. The EPR regulations are based on the 2014 Packaging Management Decree.
