The Environment Agency is carrying out a review of all Producer Responsibility legislation in order to improve “coherence” across their various regulatory regimes with an aim of reducing the regulatory burden and, potentially, compliance costs. The Agency is currently developing its consultation document and initial impact assessment, before submitting to ministers, with a view to opening consultation in late 2012 or early 2013. It is thought that the consultation will, potentially, coincide with the BIS consultation on the new WEEE Regulations which look likely to become into force for the compliance period 2014.
