Under the EPR Data Regulations, large producers (over £2m t/o and that handle more than 50 tonnes of packaging in a year) must provide data for the first 6 months of 2023 by 1 October whilst small producers (£1-2m t/o, 25-50 tonnes) must do so from January 2024 and the RPD system for EPR packaging data is now open for enrolment
The process first requires producers to enrol. This must be done by a Director, Company Secretary, partner or sole trader and is a 5 minute process that first requires the person to set up an account with their email address by obtaining a verification code. Once they receive the code, they can then go though the process and set up a delegated authorised person.
The system will not be open to allow data to be submitted until 13 September, but a producer won't be able to submit data unless they have enrolled and have a login.
