LONDON – Plans to introduce a new extended producer responsibility (EPR) scheme in the UK will not go ahead as planned next year, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has announced.

Britain's EPR proposals, part of a new Waste Prevention Programme which promised to "ramp up action on fast fashion and hold manufacturers accountable for textile waste", is still expected to go ahead but a new date has yet to be confirmed.

EPR, which makes manufacturers liable for the eventual recycling, reuse or disposal of their products, was due to be phased in from 2023 in Britain when a scheme administrator was to be appointed to oversee how the system runs.
