Europatat has joined other 120 European associations linked to the packaging supply chain in a common statement urging co-legislators to preserve in its entirety the internal market legal basis of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), as the best way to achieve the environmental and economic objectives of the proposal.

As co-legislators discuss moving away from an internal market legal basis, or opting for a dual one (internal market and environment basis), the packaging industry stresses that taking this route would further exacerbate a fragmentation of the Union market and paving the way for a patchwork of national packaging legislations, thus undermining the objective of creating one circular economy comprising all Member States, to the detriment of consumer safety, environmental protection and European competitiveness.
