In its report published in August 2002 (HLP 166, session 2001-02; ISBN 010413402X), the Committee raised concerns as to whether the UK packaging industry would be able to reach the proposed EU targets for the recovery and recycling of packaging and packaging waste by the then implementation date of 2006. The proposals have now been adopted under EU Directive 2004/12/EC with revised targets for 2008, and brought into effect in the UK under S.I. 2003/3294. The Committee's report updates their assessment of the matter by examining the actions taken by the Government over the past two years to ensure that the UK packaging industry will meet the revised targets. The report considers a range of issues including: assurances by DEFRA that the interim targets set for the UK packaging industry will enable the revised targets to be met; the quality of data availability; compliance schemes; the 'de minimis' rule; the impact in increased exports of waste; packaging recovery notes (PRN) and packaging export recovery notes (PERN); and the role of local authorities.
