The producer's volume reports are always made in duplicate. As soon as a volume report is made to a system, the producer is required to report the same information to the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR).
If a producer has contractually agreed to provide a single report to a system per year (regardless of whether it contains planned or actual volumes), they also must report this information to the ZSVR immediately. If the contract with the system includes more frequent reporting (e.g. quarterly or monthly), then the producer must in turn submit more frequent volume reports to the ZSVR. In order to make the process as simple and unbureaucratic as possible, the volume reports can also be transmitted using an XML file.
