The Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) offers automatic data reconciliation upon request. Using the producer's VAT ID or taxpayer reference number provided during registration, the registration status (yes/no) can be queried. In order to use automatic data reconciliation, please set up a login for automatic data reconciliation in the LUCID Packaging Register. To do so, a valid XML file with a correct schema must be created and uploaded. After a successful upload, the enquiring party may download an XML file containing information about whether a producer with that particular VAT ID or taxpayer reference number is registered in the LUCID Packaging Register ('yes' or 'no'). The respective guideline can be found here.
