We are very proud to announce that in collaboration with Label for Recycling, we are now offering end-to-end service to help companies in complying with the Singapore Mandatory Packaging Reporting requirements.
Under the Resource Sustainability Act, “packaging producers” (see the definition below) will have to report to the NEA the amount of packaging introduced to Singapore and provide a packaging improvement plan, this is the Mandatory Packaging Reporting (MPR).
“Packaging producers” are any companies which meet all three requirements:
- Supply regulated goods in Singapore (everything is a regulated good except what is excluded – final list to be published soon),
- Meet the prescribed threshold criteria (turnover above $10M),
- Imports or uses specified packaging as per S19(2)(a) or S19(2)(b) respectively. (contact us if you want to know more).
Our service offering is divided into 4 major steps:
- Screening: Identify all the pieces of packaging that will have to be reported under the MPR.
- Packaging assessment: For each piece of packaging, determine the material composition and weight of each of them.
- Data collection and reporting: Record the number of units introduced to Singapore and generate the data report.
- 3R Plan: Define packaging improvement targets and the timeline of implementation.
You can either do it yourself or outsource the work to us.
Do it yourself
Label for Recycling administers the Packaging Recyclability Evaluation Portal (PREP):
- PREP gives you a structured way to conduct the packaging assessment.
- PREP generates the packaging data report ready for upload.
- PREP determines if the packaging is recyclable and provides insights on how to improve it.
Outsource the work
Zero Waste City, using the tools from Label for Recycling, will:
- come on-site, review the list of packaging, and determine those which will have to be reported under the MPR.
- contact suppliers and manufacturers on your behalf to collect the relevant details and input them directly into PREP.
- help you gather all the required data to determine the number of items introduced to Singapore.
- provide benchmarks and recommendations to help you build the 3R Plan.
