Frequently asked questions
The Mandatory Packaging Reporting (MPR) framework is a regulation defined in the Resource Sustainability Act, gazetted on 4th October 2019 in Singapore. Obligated companies under the MPR must report the quantity of packaging supplied to Singapore to the National Environment Agency (NEA). More details here: https://www.nea.gov.sg/packaging
Yes, there is no limit.
No. The MPR Portal is built to protect the identity of the suppliers and vendors. Only packaging data will be shared between companies sharing the same product.
No. The data request for a single product can only be submitted to one supplier. The assumption is that the packaging of different suppliers for the exact same product should be the same.
No. If products are missing, please contact Zero Waste City team to update the list.
It means that if the packaging is linked to a product which is shared with another company, then, users from this company will be able to edit the packaging.
A typical application of this feature is, if you wish to pre-fill some details of packaging and share the product to your supplier for verification, then the supplier will be able to update the packaging themselves.
No. What matters is the weight and material composition of a packaging.
If you have 2 products with identical packaging but different content (2 yoghurt flavours for instance), you only need to record one packaging. You can then assign this unique packaging to the two products.
Anything which is descriptive and clear for you. Typically, we suggest using one of the followings:
- Name/Description of the product, the packaging will refer to.
- Description of the raw packaging material/consumable as recorded in your own database.
Use whichever method is the most efficient for you.
Separable items means parts of packaging which are designed to be separated by the consumer/user of goods. For instance, a plastic water bottle typically has two separable items: the bottle and the cap.
Yes. Silica bags used to protect the goods from humidity fit the definition of packaging, and therefore, must be recorded.
Packaging should be reported as “Composite” if the packaging consists of two or more materials that are combined together and are not easily separated.
Below are possible tips you can use to determine the type of plastic used in your packaging
- Look for a Resin Identification Code (RIC), it is the triangle with a number inside (1 to 7)
- Check the product specification sheet
- Check purchasing order of the raw packaging materials
Ideally, ±0.1g per each material and separable item. Note that the required accuracy is lesser is supplying a small number of products. Above 1,000,000 products supplied to Singapore, an accuracy of ±0.01g will be preferred.
