Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for Building Products and Materials (BPM)

Since 1 January 2023, all producers of Building Products and Materials (BPM) in the construction sector are subject to new waste management obligations.

These new obligations are part of an EPR, known as "BPM",introduced by the 2020 AGEC law and require the adhesion to an approved eco-organisation.

Find out more about the battle against waste and circular economy, also known as the "AGEC" law.

The companies concerned must join an approved eco-organisation and pay eco-contributions to it, the rate of which varies according to the nature and volume of the construction waste. These eco-contributions must be declared and must be integrated into the company's information and invoicing systems.

To facilitate the implementation of this new regulation, the eco-organisations have decided to apply eco-contributions for the products concerned, starting with the invoicing of May 2023.
