Coventry, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 11, 2013 -- Following the announcement that the Government is to increase the targets for the Packaging Regulations from 2013 - 2017, Kite Packaging, one of the UK's leading packaging suppliers is offering help to its customers who might be affected.
Under The Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007, companies which exceed turnovers of £2million are required to assess the amount of packaging they handle, and contribute towards the cost of recycling in the UK - and this year that obligation is set to rise.
A spokesperson from Kite Packaging said: "2013 will see some big changes to the Regulations, but here at Kite we are urging our customers not to panic. If you are unsure of how to calculate your obligation or have never complied before then Kite can provide free advice to avoid any penalties.
"To make the issue of compliance a little easier to grasp, we have launched a live on site compliance calculator for our online customers. If you buy your packaging online from us the good news is you can find out exactly what you have used via the My Account section of the website - simply log in and click on the Packaging Regs tab."
The handy calculator will automatically produce a report showing the weights of all the packaging materials you have bought from Kite over a user-defined period, as well as a graph to see your packaging usage at a glance.
Kite can provide businesses with one-to-one support to those unsure of their responsibilities, and businesses are assigned a Regulations expert to help with the whole compliance process, including an initial assessment of your company, identification of your obligated packaging and a calculation of your obligation, among other services. This involves converting raw data into a final obligation upon which a levy is paid in the form of PRNs (Packaging Recovery Notes).
The Environment Agency regularly audits compliance schemes and Kite is pleased to announce that its Compliance Scheme was recently rated as being excellent, so if you are worried about these new changes and what they mean for your business contact us at http://www.kitepackaging.co.uk
