Packaging, WEEE & Battery Compliance
Packaging, WEEE & Battery Compliance
We provide a range of packaging, WEEE and battery compliance and consultancy services throughout these jurisdictions.
Leaf is dedicated to helping businesses, small and large, with Producer Responsibility Initiatives (PRI) with compliance obligations in any sector.
The Leaf Group operates Packaging Compliance Schemes within the UK from offices in Belfast (Nipak for Northern Ireland) and Glasgow (Scotpak for England, Scotland and Wales).
Details on the schemes further below.
Our experience and broad range of specialist compliance services are designed to help you understand and comply with the Regulations relevant to you within your jurisdiction.
We work within the three core areas of the Packaging, WEEE & Battery Producer Responsibility Directives and offer a portfolio of consultancy services based on these regulations. These may touch on the implications of the Circular Economy, Extended Producer Responsibility, ISO or CSR or something else that you want investigated or need help with.
The packaging regulations have been in force since 1997, and have been amended on numerous occasions. We have been immersed in them since 1999.
Leaf Environmental can establish what your obligations are through a packaging audit. We specialise in understanding and working within current UK and Irish Producer Responsibility Regulations.
Whether you want to self comply with your Local Authority or pass the obligations to Repak, directly register with a UK Environment Agency or join a compliance scheme, we can help you make the best decision for your business.
We work with producers of WEEE in Ireland or the UK to help those qualifying businesses comply with the WEEE regulations. We can explain what your obligations are; we can collate your data and we can submit it for you to the relevant bodies in tandem with your other compliance obligations.
We liaise with the Producer Register Limited (formerly the WEEE Registration Society), WEEE Black Box, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); BIS and Defra in the UK and of course the compliance schemes on your behalf as part of the service.
Battery waste regulations are part of the E.U. wide Producer Responsibility series. They place recovery and recycling obligations on importers and manufacturers as well as sellers of batteries.
Part of our work is interpreting the statutory instruments and presenting you with the answer to your query as elegantly as possible.
Whether you are in Ireland or the UK, Leaf Environmental can provide information on both meeting your compliance requirements and specialist advice on what is the most cost-effective route to compliance for your business.
Leaf Environmental is a specialist producer responsibility consultancy offering a broad range of compliance support services that can be tailored to the specific needs of your organisation.
In the first instance we can help identity what, if any, your compliance obligations are and then guide you through your options, depending on the nature of the waste you are responsible for and your jurisdiction.
If you think that your business might have packaging, WEEE or battery waste obligations in the UK or Ireland, we can help you make the best decisions for your business. Contact us for advice about how to become and remain compliant.

If your business operates within the UK, the most time and cost efficient way to manage your packaging compliance obligations is to become a member of an approved compliance scheme.
As well as offering consultancy services, the Leaf Group operates two schemes that cover the whole of the UK. Northern Ireland has separate packaging waste regulations to the the rest of the UK and Nipak can advise on the relevant N.I. obligations. Scotpak covers England, Scotland and Wales.
We work with obligated businesses to help them meet their requirements under the Packaging Regulations in a practical and cost effective way. The Nipak scheme offers the best value route for local businesses to become and stay compliant.
This includes data collation and compliance services for England Scotland and Wales. Both the Nipak and the Scotpak service is distinguished by personalised client care and our broad experience across many sectors.
