Deposit return scheme - gateway review: action plan assurance

Assurance of action plan for the deposit return scheme gateway review.

5.0 Next Independent Assurance Review

It is strongly recommended that a full Gateway Review is carried out in February 2023, or close to that date. There remain many significant issues on which substantial development and progress will be required to enable the DRS system to go live in August 2023. In this AAP Review an opinion was frequently expressed that the go-live date of 16 August 2023 is now fixed and cannot be moved; this AAP agrees and concludes that the go-live date is immovable. Consequently, a Gateway Review should be scheduled 6 months in advance to enable sufficient scope and time for any recommendations to be implemented.
