About the course

The development of REP schemes in Europe has helped to improve the prevention, reuse and recycling of waste. This mechanism has proven to be an absolutely necessary and functional tool for the transition to a circular economy, being directly focused on the application of the "polluter pays" principle, according to which whoever introduces Products subject to REP remains responsible for the management of the waste resulting from the end of the life cycle of these products.

At the national level, the implementation of REP schemes is regulated by art. 12 of Law no. 209/2016 on waste and includes 6 waste streams (electrical and electronic equipment, packaging, batteries and accumulators, vehicles, oils and tires).
