New rules on packaging

Two new Decisions and a draft Directive on packaging and packaging waste have been published recently by the European Commission. The legislation introduces common systems for identifying different types of packaging, symbols to indicate that it is recyclable or reusable, and standardised formats to be used by Member States when reporting on their progress in packaging waste recovery. Much of the legislation is voluntary, but even so it has run into opposition from the packaging industry.
