Lauren Small PWP slide for website 2 1

FRN Product Weight Protocol administrator, Lauren, explains how to apply for your PWP as an FRN Member and Non-Member. 

WHAT IS THE PRODUCT WEIGHT PROTOCOL (PWP)?

The Product Weight Protocol (previously known as the Average Weights List) is a list of the average weights of over 200 products. The list is used by a variety of reuse and recycling organisations across the UK, to ensure they provide UK regulators with the correct information of their operations. Use of the PWP requires an annual licence from the FRN, and this licence has been agreed with and recognised by UK regulators as being acceptable for use for compliance purposes. The PWP is for use within your organisation only and is not to be passed onto any third parties. There are a variety of uses for the PWP, from reporting on how many tonnes of furniture you have saved from landfill, to submitting your reuse credit claims to your local authority. The PWP is free for FRN members as part of their membership, and for external organisations the cost is £300+vat per site.

The annual licence for the PWP runs from the 1st January – 31st December each year, and the FRN will contact licence holders directly when their licence is close to expiring to begin the renewal process.

If you already hold a licence you will receive an email from Lauren with instructions of how to renew your licence for the next year between now and the end of November. If you would like to consider applying for a new licence please read the information below.
