​UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) announces Draft Regulations The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging and Packaging Waste) Regulations. The Regulations will require certain categories of businesses, including importers who are established and supply packaged products in the UK, to label packaging as ‘Recycle’ or ‘Do Not Recycle’ together with a logo, as specified in the Regulations. Businesses that manufacture or import unfilled packaging for supply to another business will be required to provide information on its recyclability. This will inform correct labelling by the businesses that subsequently fill that packaging. A common methodology to determine recyclability will be publicly available. This will inform businesses which label to apply. The Regulations will include details of the types of packaging that must be labelled, flexibility regarding medical and veterinary products, and exemptions for certain packaging items such as small packaging. ​ Proposed date of adoption: January 1, 2025 Proposed date of entry into force: April 1, 2027; Businesses can comply with the labelling provisions prior to April 1, 2027 if they choose.​
