SUPD Becomes Law

On June 12, 2019, the Single-Use Plastics Directive on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment was published in the European Union’s Official Journal. This marks the final step of the legislative procedure. Member States will now have two years to transpose this Directive into their national laws, until July 3, 2021.

Reloop has prepared a short backgrounder to explain what this Directive entails.
