MEPA designates an EPR number (WMP) to every importer. According to L.N. 277 of 2006 every importer of products that include packaging must first register with MEPA and then join a Waste Packaging Compliance Scheme which will collect and recyle waste packaging on their behalf. The importer’s obligations under the law as a producer (importer) are then passed on and handled by the Scheme.
