EPR as a lever towards circular economy
Moving towards proper implementation of EPR
Many EPR systems are based on competition between PROs. In these countries one of the most important issues is to guarantee fair competition. Will the requirements help to reach this need as one of the elements helping to fulfill new Packaging Directive objectives?
Today it is difficult or even impossible to compare different EPR systems in EU. Will the introduction of the requirements help to find a common denominator making credible analysis possible?

Which kind of modulation will be possible and practicable both for obliged industry as well as for PRO’s?
