It is possible to apply to the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) for a determination about the system participation requirement for a specific packaging. Individual applications will be decided in the form of an administrative act. Please note, however, that the system participation requirement catalogue will answer the most frequently asked classification questions. The catalogue is published as an administrative regulation, and therefore is material for determining the system participation requirement. If you are planning to make an application, please familiarise yourself with the fact sheet and the application forms to find out about the specific requirements. This facilitates processing and avoids delays (application procedure).
