Member Fees and Ts&Cs

To become a member of the On-Pack Recycling Label scheme and start putting the label on your packaging you must pay your annual subscription fee in advance to OPRL Ltd.  We will ask you to meet the scheme’s rules and will enforce these through our compliance monitoring.

The annual fees are as follows:

  • £950 (+VAT) per company, including holding companies with one or more subsidiaries or brands, with a special introductory discount of 10% in 2016 for companies putting in place a recurring subscription made automatically by electronic payment.
  • £299 (+VAT) for charities and small, independent businesses with an annual turnover of less than £5 million, on condition that a recurring subscription made automatically by electronic payment is put in place.

As a not-for-profit company we set our fees to cover our costs in delivering services to members, re-investing any surplus in developing the scheme and furthering its aims. No dividend is distributed.

On each anniversary of your membership you must pay a renewal fee. Failure to pay any fee owed within 60 days of the due date will result in the sub-licence agreement being terminated with immediate effect. This means you will not be able to use the label on any of your packaging.

Any changes to fees may be notified to members in writing and/or set out on this website.
