Start-ups and Sole Traders

This category has been designed for start-ups and sole traders on a very tight budget who do not declare under the PRN system but are keen to deliver sustainable packaging and engage consumers in reuse and recycling. You should be placing less than 50 tonnes of packaging on the UK market each year and no more than £2 million in turnover.

This subsidised membership provides a basic service with full online support (access to our Labelling Rules, Labelling Tool and online support services) but does not include support from our Membership Services Team. If you think you’ll need help from our team please sign up under our standard rates.
