Regulations concerning packaging, and packaging waste management, seek to provide a high level of environmental protection and in some instances, as within the EU, to remove barriers to trade.
Our packaging topic in C2P is focused on the various regulatory aspects related to the packaging of products. It covers a wide range of packaging types and materials such as plastic, metal, wood and glass, and encompasses a broad spectrum of policy issues, regulating aspects such as hazardous substances, design/volume, labeling and waste requirements.
Packaging sources covered contain measures concerning:
- Concentration levels of heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury and hexavalent chromium) in packaging or its components
- Minimization of packaging volume and weight
- Design and composition of packaging in a manner that permits its reuse and recovery
- Extended producer responsibility (EPR) on the prevention and management of packaging at the end of its life cycle (collection, sorting, recycling, etc.)
