European Recycling Platform (ERP) UK Ltd's application to operate a packaging compliance scheme has been approved by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
From 2013, ERP will offer producers packaging compliance in addition to its current suite of WEEE and batteries compliance.
ERP UK was approved by the Environment Agency as a WEEE producer compliance scheme in February 2007 and as a battery compliance scheme in September 2009.
Scott Butler, ERP UK's managing director, said: "It's great news that we've been approved as a packaging compliance scheme. We're delighted to be able to offer our current members the full range of compliance and we hope as many producers as possible will take the opportunity to move their compliance needs 'under one roof'."
Umberto Raiteri, ERP's president and CEO, commented: "Being able to offer our customers a new compliance service will allow ERP to reinforce its presence in the UK market, while across Europe we continue to grow, offering extended services in more countries as the only multi-country and multi-product compliance scheme."
