This Portal is for beverage suppliers or other relevant businesses to submit eligible beverage containers supplied in NSW to the EPA for approval.


Visit the EPA Website for information on which beverage containers are eligible and requirements for suppliers.

Suppliers must register with the Scheme Co-ordinator, Exchange for Change to obtain a Supply Arrangement Number (SAN) before creating an account on this Portal. You can find more information on the Exchange for Change website.
