Plastic Packaging Tax Online Clinic

20 January 2022


From 1st April 2022, many CBA distributor members will be affected by the new Plastic Packaging Tax. This new tax will impact both UK manufacturers of plastic packaging and UK importers of plastic packaging, whether the imported packaging is unfilled or filled. This new tax of £200/tonne will apply to plastic packaging manufactured in, or imported into the UK, that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic.

This short clinic is designed to explain:

• the packaging in scope of the new tax
• who will be impacted
• the threshold tests
• the deadlines for registration
• the reporting requirements

This presentation will be delivered by Michael Pye, Business Development Manager at the European Recycling Platform (ERP). ERP is part of the Landbell Group, an international supplier of service and consulting solutions for environmental and chemical compliance. ERP is the first and only pan-European producer responsibility organisation authorised to operate in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. ERP has proved to be the most competitive solution for companies in the countries where it operates for WEEE, batteries and packaging compliance, as well as take-back services.

This is the latest in our ongoing series of “Online Clinics” and “Best Practice Workshops”, part of our new initiative to increase the value of membership. Watch out for other such events going forward.
