On 3rd September 2020, an amendment to the “Cooperation Agreement on the prevention and management of packaging waste” entered into force for all three regions in Belgium: Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia.
This instrument regulates extended producer responsibility (EPR) for packaging in Belgium.
The most important changes involve setting new recycling targets for the period starting in 2021, which are more challenging than those set by the Packaging Directive itself.
Foreign companies are also included in the definition of producer and eco-modulation of compliance fees is introduced.
The latter is a mechanism established for rewarding more eco-friendly packaging, which is already implemented in other EU Member States, such as Germany.
Belgium is one of the countries covered by Landbell Group’s Regulatory Tracking Reports. These reports capture the latest EPR developments and requirements in over 100 countries globally. Find out more about the reports here.
