EPR Compliance Made Easy: A Guide for Businesses in Vietnam
Yen Vu

Vietnam has become a pioneer in the ASEAN region by adopting the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations under the new Law on Environmental Protection, which took effect on 1 January 2022. The EPR regulations in Vietnam include two main parts: waste treatment responsibility and recycling responsibility, with implementation dates of 1 January 2022 and 1 January 2024, respectively. Non-compliance with these requirements carries substantial penalties and the possibility of additional corrective actions.
