All packages or packaged products placed on the Spanish market, whether domestic, commercial or industrial, shall be affected.
DRAFT ROYAL DECREE ON PACKAGING AND PACKAGING WASTE
The RD sets out obligations for precaution, reuse and design in order to move towards a circular economy. The RD reviews the extended producer responsibility (APR) scheme for household packaging after almost 25 years of application of Law 11/1997 of 24 April to bring it into line with the new regulation established at Community level and transposed by Law 7/2022 of 8 April on contaminated waste and soils for a circular economy. In addition, the APR scheme applies to commercial and industrial packaging, which have generally been exempted.
Similarly, the RD foresees the necessary mechanisms to comply with the EU’s reporting obligations and to increase transparency and proper monitoring and control of producers’ obligations as regards both the placing on the market of products and the management of their waste.
