Packing and Packaging Waste Directive and Packaging Act – Did you know that?
In many european countries, the Packing and Packaging Directive requires manufacturers, distributors or importers of packaging or packaged products to contribute to the cost of waste disposal (responsibility for product or responsibility for taking back and disposing of packaging). For this purpose, recognised “dual systems” have been set up, which award the necessary licences. In Germany the new Packaging Law came into force in 2019 and the so called Central Agency Packaging Register („Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister“/LUCID) monitor the market with the help of a register where companies have to sign up before they start selling products with packaging.
