Development of Guidance on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
Monier, Véronique et al. 2014: Development of Guidance on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). BIO Intelligence Service; in collaboration with Arcadis, Ecologic Institute, Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP), Umweltbundesamt (UBA).
This study, launched in October 2012, seeks to identify performing EPR schemes for different waste streams (e.g. ELV, WEEE, Batteries, Packaging, Paper, Used Oil) and prepare detailed case studies, in order to identify common characteristics across schemes, which could serve as a guide for improving the effectiveness of such schemes. The study should allow the Commission to formulate new proposals to ensure an optimal use of EPR schemes. The study is available for download.
