Compliance Alert: If you manufacture, distribute, or sell products with single-use packaging in California, SB 54 impacts you.
This highly focused legal webinar is designed for government affairs professionals, sustainability teams, attorneys, and applicable business owners.
Adam Regele, CalChamber's recycling and extended producer responsibility expert and lead negotiator for the business community on SB 54, will present live and answer questions submitted via Zoom.
California's recycling laws and regulations dramatically changed on June 30, 2022, following the passage of Senate Bill 54 (Allen; D-Santa Monica), the Plastic Pollution Prevention and Packaging Producer Responsibility Act.
SB 54 upends California’s existing recycling framework for all single-use packaging, including paper, plastic, glass, aluminum, and single-use plastic food service ware, including, but not limited to, plastic-coated paper, plastic-coated paperboard, paper or paperboard with plastic intentionally added, and multilayer flexible material.
SB 54 interacts with other California laws, such as SB 343 (Allen; D-Santa Monica), to create a circular economy framework that is the nation’s most complex extended producer responsibility program. Failing to comply may result in product and packaging bans and/or fines up to $50,000 per violation per day with no cap, among other enforcement actions.
Join CalChamber’s Adam Regele for a discussion about the history of SB 54, the author’s intent on important provisions in the bill, compliance hurdles businesses face, potential pitfalls to avoid, and other related recycling laws that interact with SB 54.
