Online retailers are often the producers / initial distributors subject to registration for the shipment packaging only. This is the case where the following requirements apply:
- They sell the products of other producers that have assumed the respective producer responsibility (these producers are initial distributors, and therefore are required to register the relevant brand names).
- They do not import any goods themselves.
If the requirements set out above are met, then the mail order company does not need to include the brand names of the other producers when registering for the shipment packaging.
