All Committees

On Thursday, 23 April 2020, AmCham EU published a position paper on the Single Use Plastics Directive. This feeds into the work of the European Commission as it collaborates with key stakeholders in its preparation of guidance documents and implementation actions. The Single Use Plastics Directive was adopted in June 2019 and aims to reduce marine litter. The position paper specifically addresses the scope and calculation of litter clean-up costs relating to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), as well as obligations relating to marking and awareness-raising measures.
