THE OBLIGATION OF PRODUCERS OF SINGLE-USE PLASTIC PRODUCTS TO REPORT THEIR PROGRESS IN CONSUMPTION REDUCTION IS ALREADY VALID AS OF THIS YEAR

21. 4. 2022

Please note that the statutory deadline for reporting the progress on consumption decrease to the Ministry of Environment is 30 April 2022 and it applies only to producers of single-use plastic products.

The amendment to the Act on Waste No. 430/2021 Coll., adopted by the National Council of SR on 2 November 2021, implemented the Directive on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment and imposed an obligation on the producers of single-use plastic products to annually produce a report on the measures taken to reduce consumption.

It is recommended to elaborate the report in accordance with Annex III of the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2022/162 of 4 February 2022.

Producer responsibility organizations do not take over such obligation from the producers. However, if you are subject to the above-stated obligation and need some advice, contact us at [email protected]
