Register to engage and stay informed on the development of the Packaging SA Federation of Plans
Packaging SA is in the process of developing an Industry Waste Management Plan (IndWMP) in line with the Minister of Environmental Affairs “Call on the Paper and Packaging Industry, Electronical and Electronic industry and Lighting industry to prepare and submit industry waste management plans to the Minister for approval” detailed in Government Gazette No.1353 on 6 December 2017.
Packaging SA intends to submit a Federation of Plans for the packaging industry as a whole. PAMSA and PRASA are Producer Responsibility Organisations (PROs) that included in the preparation of these plans.
Each PRO is in the process of completing their own individual plans for inclusion into the Federation of Plans. During this process many have or will be engaging with key Stakeholders during this process.
The PRO plans will be submitted for inclusion into the Federation of Plans. A comprehensive public participation process as per the required regulatory process will be undertaken during mid July to mid August with a broader range of stakeholders.

If you are a Brand owner, processor (converter) or producer (local and/or importer) and have not yet registered with your respective PRO, then please do so now. If you manage a number of material streams, please register with ALL material PROs (no cost for the registration for this purpose).
