The final distributor can request that one of the upstream distributors of the service packaging (which the final distributor filled with goods) undertakes system participation with a dual system for the service packaging which the upstream distributor delivered unfilled to the final distributor. The registration requirement will then also shift to that upstream distributor. The final distributor of the service packaging is then no longer subject to any further registration or system participation in this regard. However, the final distributor should make sure that an upstream distributor has indeed fully complied with the registration requirement and the system participation requirement. It should also be noted that the final distributor's registration and system participation requirements for other service, retail or grouped packaging remain unaffected.
