We will demystify the legislation and guidelines around packaging your products when selling your goods to customers across Europe.

What you’ll learn

  • understand what the EU Packaging Directive means for how you package your goods and fulfil your obligations when selling to European customers
  • demystify terms such as Extender Producer Responsibility and the Packaging Waste Directive
  • what the new EU regulations coming into force in 2025 mean for your obligations when trading with EU member states


Packaging is a crucial component of your product when selling your goods overseas. If you are currently exporting or thinking of selling your products to EU member states, please join us in this exclusive masterclass with Plastics Europe to learn more about the EU Packaging Directive, what the requirements are and what actions you must take to ensure your business is complying to the legislation.

Recent regulatory changes over the last couple of years, with the EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive and the new EU Packaging Directive now being discussed and expected to come into force in 2025, we want you to stay ahead of the curve and give you the know-how to understand your obligations.
