Legally compliant packaging
made easy.
Throughout Europe.

Have you already started licensing your packaging in your European export markets? Every country in Europe has its own packaging rules and licensing procedures. Sellers who fail to comply with these requirements may face painful penalties.

Minimise your exposure by using our action guides for pan-European packaging licensing!

Do you sell products to other European countries?
If so, you need to be careful!

Because you could easily fail to comply with the rules, regulations and legislation in force in these countries. All European countries have their equivalent of the German Packaging Act. They have used the EU Packaging Directive as a template for their own national laws.

The problem:

  • Implementation is completely different in different countries.
  • There is no central point of contact.
  • There is a lack of information in German and what is available often has to be pieced together with great effort.
  • At the same time, those who violate the regulations can expect to be hit with severe penalties.

Our solution:

With LIZENZERO.EU, we are rolling out the European version of LIZENZERO.DE, the solution we successfully introduced in response to the German Packaging Act. Small to medium-sized businesses can now take advantage of our information platform to find out whether there is a licensing obligation in their target markets, what costs are likely to be involved, and how to handle the licensing process themselves, step by step. Our service

  • saves time,
  • complies with the guidelines,
  • is straightforward,
  • and is completely digital.

Basic analysis: Do you have a licensing obligation in your export country?

Each European country has its own regulations on packaging licensing, based on the EU Packaging Directive. For example, in one country the amount of packaging may be critical in determining the licensing obligation, while in another, the deciding factor is the revenue generated.

To enable you to maintain an overview of this confusing state of affairs and know whether an obligation exists, we carry out a basic analysis based on your information and the specific requirements of your export country. Once we have completed the analysis, we provide you with clear recommendations for action.

A practical action guide to your export country

The various European export countries differ not only in their licensing requirements but also in the way that licensing has to be carried out.

This is why we provide you with detailed information on the countries you export to.

  • A quick guide to licensing, with checklist
  • Information on anticipated pricing
  • Recommended recycling systems
  • Other useful information

The LIZENZERO.EU process


The starting point for both of our country services is a basic digital analysis. This considers the specific requirements of your target country and is based on what you tell us about your company. We then provide you with a detailed action guide for each of the countries in which you have responsibilities. You will then have a clear overview of the situation and will be able to carry out licensing in your export countries yourself at the least possible cost.

If you cannot spare the time, you can always make use of our licensing service and let our team do the work of Europe-wide packaging licensing for you!

from Wickelkinder GmbH (

Even though Wickelkinder GmbH ( is a small company, we decided to do our own licensing in our European markets. The detailed action guides for the various export countries provided by LIZENZERO.EU are very useful, and help to minimise the time required for this process. “With just a few clicks, this inexpensive service helps us to find out whether there are any obligations to license packaging in our target countries, as well as associated costs – based on our reported volumes – and the steps needed to complete this licensing.
