At the end of last year an important milestone was reached in the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulations (PPWR). The European Parliament agreed its adopted position on the PPWR. We were delighted to see several of our key recommendations included and that contact sensitive, medical device packaging is now considered within a number of Articles and Amendments. As negotiations begin between the Parliament and the European Commission on the ultimate shape of the legislation, there is still work to do.
We will continue to fight hard to make sure the final legal text properly considers sterile barrier systems and that the voice of the medical packaging industry continues to be heard.
