Environment Minister Dick Roche has signed amendments to the Packaging Regulations that bring the registration fee for self compliers to e15,000.
All firms with a turnover greater than e1 milllion that are involved in placing more than 25 tonnes of packaging on the market each year must recycle a specified amount of packaging.
Repak is the only scheme licensed by the Government to take on these obligations on behalf of packaging companies.
Roche said: "Repak members have been faced with significantly increased membership fees in the last two years.
"In order to ensure a more level playing field, it is only fair that those major producers not participating in the Repak scheme should also be faced with increased compliance costs under the Packaging Regulations."
