Data submission Support Series 2019-20 (Comply Direct members only)
November - February 2020
Our ever-popular Data Submission Support Webinar Series is back! We’re hosting multiple free webinars from November up until February 2020, covering Data Gathering (no further occurrences are now available for this topic), Data Tables and Data Submission.
You will be aware that by 28 February 2020, you will need to have collected, calculated and submitted data related to your company's packaging activities between the 1 January and 31 December 2019. We appreciate that for many companies, the data submission process involves a lot of time, resource and hard work. Therefore, we hold this series of free support webinars every year to assist you with your submission and minimise any difficulties you may come up against.
This full series has been approved and accredited by CPD (Continuing Professional Development). Therefore, all attendees of the webinars will receive 1 hour of CPD time and a certificate of attendance following each webinar topic to evidence this.

UK Packaging Recycling & PRN Market Update: Ending 2019 & 2020 Forecast (Members Only)
Thursday 20 February at 10am
The aim of this webinar is to provide packaging members with an additional market update prior to the release of the Q4 verified recycling data in March, which we will be holding a further webinar on in April.
Due to the considerable amount of change and volatility in the PRN market over the past year, we are sharing our analysis on the latest Environment Agency (EA) unverified and monthly recycling data we have available to us at this stage, providing our estimate on the UK’s position against the recycling targets at the end of the 2019 compliance year and how we foresee 2020 starting off; key information to understand potential factors that will drive PRN market trends moving into 2020. In addition, we will discuss further factors set to affect the 2020 PRN market, including recycling targets, as well as statistics around accredited re-processors and exporters of packaging waste.
