Regular Membership Fees

The Repak fee structure for regular members is shared across the packaging supply chain (shared responsibility). There are five stages on the shared responsibility chain:

  • Materials Manufacturer – makes or imports material to be made into packaging
  • Converter – makes or imports (empty) packaging
  • Distributor – is the first to transport the packaged product in Republic of Ireland
  • Brandholder/Importer – applies packaging or owns the brand or imports packaged products
  • Retailer – the final stage at which the customer removes packaging for disposal

Note that a major producer may be active on several or all stages of the chain eg. importer, distributor and retailer, and will be required to pay fees for each stage.

Fees are charged on a ‘pay as you produce’ basis, and different fees apply to individual material types – reflecting the cost of recovery and recycling of those materials.

Fees per tonne of each material type and for each stage of the production and distribution process are as follows:

BACK FEES

A major producer who joins Repak as a regular member may be required to pay back fees. Liability for back fees may arise if the producer has not been compliant with the legislation for any previous years prior to becoming a Repak member.

Exemption from back fees will be given if the producer can provide documented evidence of either (a) self-compliance with a local authority for relevant years or (b) non-obligation for relevant years i.e below the tonnage or income thresholds set out in the legislation.
