The costs of setting up the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) and the annual operating costs are refinanced proportionally by levies on dual systems and sector-specific solutions. These levies are restricted to 'necessary costs'. The necessary costs must be attested by an auditor, and the assessment of the levies received must be approved by the German Environment Agency. The German Federal Audit Office checks to ensure that the funds are being used economically by reviewing the budget and use of funds.
