1.0 Title of proposal: Reforming the UK packaging producer responsibility system
1. This is the partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA) assessing the impact on Scotland of proposed reforms to the existing UK packaging producer responsibility system.
2. The BRIA was written subject to the most up-to-date information at the time and accompanies a joint four-countries consultation document. Much of the information included in this document is closely aligned with the Impact Assessment prepared by DEFRA, which was undertaken on a UK-wide basis, hereafter referred to as the UK IA.
3. The final BRIA, which will be published at the same time as secondary legislation, will be informed by information gathered through consultation with businesses and the public.
