Welcome on the website of the Interregional Packaging Commission (IRPC). We are the official body that monitors the implementation of the legislation on the prevention and management of packaging waste. Our website is available in French and in Dutch. However, the presentation of the IRPC, as well as a summary of the legislation, is also available in English.

Also, in the downloads to your right, you will find English translations of our most important documents:

  • We invite you to read our annual Activity Report, which will give you an overview of our activities and will provide you with some key data, like the Belgian recycling and recovery results.
  • For a full comprehension of the Belgian packaging waste legislation, you will find an English translation of the "Cooperation agreement", which is our Belgian "Packaging Law", as well as translations of the Fost Plus and Val-I-Pac accreditation texts
