The Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act) calls for audits and/or confirmations by auditors and experts at various junctures. To ensure that audits and confirmations are conducted in a uniform manner and to achieve a uniform standard between different auditor and expert groups, the ZSVR developed audit guidelines for these activities. The audit guidelines have been approved by the German Federal Cartel Office.
- 'Sector-specific solutions audit guidelines' to audit compliance with record-keeping duties in relation to notification as a sector-specific solution pursuant to section 8 (1) and to audit volume flow records pursuant to section 17 (2) VerpackG
(last updated: 1 January 2019)
These audit guidelines represent the foundation for the audits conducted by auditors/experts registered in the LUCID Packaging Register. The ZSVR has the power to remove auditors/experts from the register of auditors for up to three years if an auditor/expert repeatedly and in gross breach of duty violates the audit guidelines (section 27 (4) VerpackG).
Under 'market share', you will find the 'audit guidelines for system auditors for reporting and confirming packaging subject to system participation pursuant to section 20 VerpackG'.
