Legislation and Strategy

The laws under which the UK are governed in relation to packaging and waste are derived and guided by laws, directives and strategies at a European level. Individual countries then transpose these into regulations and policies, although the approaches and interpretations can differ between countries. This section contains information on relevant key packaging and waste legislation and strategy at a European, UK and individual nation level.
