Depending on the nature of the change in legal entity, the registration will either remain under the former legal entity, or the producer will need to be re-registered under the new legal entity. It is the responsibility of the new legal entity to check in each individual situation whether producer status has been transferred and whether the new legal entity is required to register pursuant to section 9 VerpackG (Packaging Act). The former legal entity is required to check whether producer status has been retained and the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) must be notified of the change. The deciding factor is whether assets were transferred and whether producer status was also transferred in the process.
