Almost two years later, where do we stand? 

After one year of intense legislative work on the text by the European Parliament and Council, inter-institutional negotiations started in January 2024 under the supervision of the Belgian Presidency of the Council, and officially concluded in March 2024. Officially endorsed by the European Parliament during its plenary session of April 2024, the text is going through a legal review by lawyer-linguists and is now expected to be published and enter into force in the autumn 2024. 

Recyclability, reuse, waste prevention, recycled content…

Many new requirements falling under the direct responsibility of economic operators are included across the 13 Chapters and 71 Articles of the text. Those obligations include sustainability and information requirements that packaging must satisfy to be allowed on the Union market. Concretely, what does this mean for businesses? What do you need to know to best prepare for the application of the new PPWR requirements?
