Extended Producer Responsibility scheme
As highlighted in a previous newsletter, the so-called Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme will be introduced as part of the waste management reform, which will make producers financially responsible for the costs of managing the waste arising from their products. The waste management tasks will be carried out by the concession company MOHU MOL Hulladékgazdálkodási Zrt., a subsidiary of MOL Nyrt., and producers will have to conclude a contract and pay a producer responsibility fee to this company. The detailed rules of the EPR scheme were laid down in the Decree 80/2023, published on 14 March 2023.
