Sweden: Packaging Update

The Swedish packaging take-back system FTI will be incorporated into the Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) Näringslivets Producentansvar (NPA) as per 1st January 2024. By 1st November 2023, all producers must have joined an admitted PRO.

NPA is a newly established company that helps producers of packaging to fulfil their extended producer responsibility in Sweden.

The government passed a new producer responsibility packaging regulation in June 2022. This regulation requires that all producers must be affiliated with a PRO approved by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. According to the regulation, the responsibility for the collection of household packaging will be transferred from the producers to the municipalities on 1st January 2024. The obligation of producers to pay for the collection of packaging and to ensure that the packaging waste material is recycled will continue.

NPA will build on the expertise and experience developed by FTI. For producers currently affiliated with FTI, the aim is to have a smooth and safe transition.
