Towards generalised extended producer responsibility (GEPR)

Ignasi Puig Ventosa | ENT

The notion of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) has been part of EU waste policy for a long time. The Waste Framework Directive (WFD) [1] states that “in order to strengthen the re-use and the prevention, recycling and other recovery of waste, Member States may take legislative or non-legislative measures to ensure that any natural or legal person who professionally develops, manufactures, processes, treats, sells or imports products (producer of the product) has extended producer responsibility.” (art. 8.1 WFD), and it also specifies that EPR “may include an acceptance of returned products and of the waste that remains after those products have been used, as well as the subsequent management of the waste and financial responsibility for such activities·” (art. 8.1 WFD).
