Amendment to the ECO Contribution Regulations

The Eco Contribution Regulations (S.L. 473.05) have been revised in virtue of LN 299 of 2019 published on 12 November 2019.

The new provisions concern the power of the Minister, on the advice of the Resource Recovery and Recycling Agency, to exempt a producer from the payment of eco-contribution due on products, subject to certain conditions being satisfied, including, if the producer proves to the satisfaction of the Minister that he is participating in a circular economy initiative, as defined, and has either invested or is going to invest in the said scheme.
