Information & Orientation

Facts and figures

Within its remit, the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) intends to provide facts and figures – to an appropriate extent – concerning its activities to the public and parties under obligation under the Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act).


Development of system participation volumes

  • The degree of system participation is calculated based on the participation volumes and market volumes of packaging subject to system participation. As the ZSVR itself has no information about market volumes, this data needs to be collected through market research, incurring costs. During the pandemic, market distortions and new deposit regulations caused the data to be neither representative nor comparable with previous years. It is not clear at this point when it will make sense to resume such market research.
