Information & Orientation

Overview of systems and other contacts

In order to properly implement the Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act), producers / initial distributors may need some support. System operators, experts, consulting firms, chambers of commerce and chambers of foreign trade are all available to provide that service.

In Germany, recovery and recycling services are provided by what is known as (dual) systems. Private final consumers dispose of their packaging waste in yellow bags/bins, paper bins and paper/glass containers after use. The packaging is then sorted into different groups at sorting and recycling plants where as much high-quality material is recovered as possible. Each party under obligation is free to decide which system(s) they will enter into an agreement with.

What systems are there, and how can I get in touch with them? Scroll down for a list of system operators and their contact details. If you are placing packaging that is subject to system participation on the German market, you are required to conclude a contractual agreement with a system. To find out whether the system participation requirement applies to you and your packaging, click here.

Registered experts/auditors are listed in the public register of auditors (see divisions 1 and 2 of the LUCID Packaging Register); some of them also offer consulting services. The experts listed in division 1 are authorised to audit the volume flow records of systems and sector-specific solutions, as well as declarations of completeness. Experts listed in division 2 are authorised to audit declarations of completeness. We thank you for your understanding that we as a supervisory authority are unable – and are not permitted – to provide consulting services on an individual basis. In particular, we are not permitted to provide information regarding the selection of system operators or their fees. In addition, we are not permitted to comment on or provide information about any matters not contained in section 26 VerpackG (Packaging Act). Here too, we ask for your understanding.

For technical questions about the LUCID database, please contact our support hotline. The database itself contains a number of different tips and guidelines.

Contact for legal and technical oversight and appeal procedures

Since the Verpackungsgesetz entered into force on 1 January 2019, the German Environment Agency has been responsible for the legal and technical supervision of the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) in public law matters. It is also the reviewing authority in the appeal procedure against administrative acts of the ZSVR. In addition, the German Environment Agency is also the authorisation authority for the permission granted by the ZSVR to systems to publish reports as defined in § 21 (2) VerpackG, and for the minimum standard for recycling-friendly design.

The Umweltbundesamt is also the licensing authority for assessing the levies received by the ZSVR, as well as the accounting thereof.

You can contact the Umweltbundesamt using the following information:

Umweltbundesamt (German Environment Agency)
Fachgebiet III 1.6 - SG VerpackG
Wörlitzer Platz 1
06844 Dessau-Roßlau
