Europan Regulation

Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste

German Implementation

Gesetz über das Inverkehrbringen, die Rücknahme und die hochwertige Verwertung von Verpackungen (Verpackungsgesetz - VerpackG)

"Registration requirement for producers / initial distributor

Any party who places packaging subject to system participation onto the German market (producer / initial distributor) must register with the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) in the LUCID Packaging Register. Producer status is triggered by the first placement of packaging onto the German market on a commercial basis, or introduction into Germany, and does not depend on distribution method or retail level (section 3 VerpackG (Packaging Act))."
