Recruitment for member and chair of the Advisory Committee on Packaging

Recruitment has opened for a new member to represent retailers on the Advisory Council on Packaging (ACP) and also the re-appointment of the chair.

The ACP is designed to bring together the expertise and experience of individuals with a specific interest in packaging and packaging waste issues. They are drawn from the various parts of the packaging supply chain, including businesses which have legal obligations under the GB and NI Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations, e.g. manufacturers of packaging raw materials, converters, packer/fillers and sellers, as well as others who are involved in the management of packaging waste – local authorities, compliance schemes, waste management companies and exporters.

The adverts for both positions are currently live (links here for retailer and chair).

The deadline for retailer applications is the 15th of Sept and for the chair the deadline is the 22nd of Sept. Applications should be sent to packaging@defra.gov.uk. More info on how to apply is in the links above.
