Why Europe-wide packaging licensing?

27 countries, one goal: closing loops and thus conserving resources by recycling packaging. The legal basis for this is the European Packaging Directive 94/62/EC, which is currently being comprehensively revised as part of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) and will bring with it further requirements. Both the current directive and the PPWR make distributors of packaging responsible for recycling their packaging. However, implementation varies from country to country.

For shipments to other EU countries, this means 27 laws, different languages, contact points, obligations and quantity thresholds. This can be complicated and can be expensive if you fail to comply. But don’t worry: with our licensing service, this is exactly where we come in and make it easy for you to fulfil all the requirements.

An overview of the most frequently asked questions

What is the PPWR?

PPWR stands for Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation. It sets out requirements for packaging and packaging waste for all materials that are placed on the European market. It also includes requirements for packaging design, specifications for reusable packaging and waste management. The special feature: The current EU directive (EU Packaging Directive 94/62/EC ) is implemented differently by each member state and, as the word suggests, serves as a “directive” for laws at national level. The planned PPWR, on the other hand, is a regulation. This means that the provisions contained in the PPWR would come into force uniformly in all 27 EU member states. In contrast to a directive, this does not allow member states any room for manoeuvre to adapt European law to national circumstances.

EPR systems for packaging in comparison: a country overview

EPR systems for packaging in comparison: a country overview

In the EU, retailers and manufacturers who place products on the market are subject to certain environmental responsibilities. Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a way of obliging companies to take responsibility for the entire life cycle of their products. This includes not only the product itself, but also all packaging and (product) components put into circulation that are disposed of by end consumers. The exact areas covered by the EPR vary from country to country. In this article, we take a look at the EPR in the area of packaging and shed light on what exactly the requirements mean, how they are implemented in practice and how the requirements differ from country to country within the EU.

EPR obligations in Poland: volume threshold and registration obligation

EPR obligations in Poland: volume threshold and registration obligation

Since 13 June 2013, the handling of packaging waste in Poland has been regulated by the Act on Packaging and Packaging Waste Management (Journal of Laws 2019.542). Among other things, it sets out requirements for packaging, the handling of packaging waste and regulations regarding recycling fees. This means that companies in Poland are subject to extended producer responsibility (EPR). The EPR regulations are intended to ensure that companies take responsibility for the disposal of their packaging and thus contribute to the promotion of the circular economy. The EPR entails obligations regarding the handling of a company’s own products and packaging. In the following article, we shed light on what you need to consider as a retailer on the Polish market.
