Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy that regulates a producer’s responsibility for a product throughout product’s life cycle. A producer takes the responsibility for financing collection, recycling and end-of-life disposal of WEEE, batteries, accumulators and packaging and other EPR product categories, Under EPR regulations, a producer of products subject to EPR requirements must mitigate the environmental impacts of their products throughout the entire product life cycle.
The EPR obligations of a producer are mainly regulated by the following EU directives:
1. WEEE Directive
2. Battery Directive
3. Packaging Directive
In some other countries, the EPR regulations have been extended to more products and categories, e.g. France.
