The packaging of printed/publishing products is subject to system participation when these products are classified as goods. In the case of, for example, invoices or unaddressed direct mail sent in envelopes it can be unclear whether they qualify as goods or not. Here, the question is whether the focus is on transmitting a notional content (in this case the document does not qualify as goods) or on the physical aspect (in this case it does qualify as goods).
