You are required to register with the LUCID Packaging Register in any case. When purchasing the service packaging that you want to use for your products, there are two options: you can purchase it with or without system participation.
If your packaging supplier has already participated the service packaging with a system, then that service packaging is 'pre-participated'. Please make sure that this pre-participation is stated on an invoice or delivery note.
However, if you purchased your service packaging without pre-participation, you are required to bear the cost for that packaging's recovery and recycling yourself. That means that you need to participate the service packaging with a system by concluding an agreement with one or more system operator(s). In addition, if you purchased your service packaging without pre-participation, you are required to submit regular data reports on your packaging volumes to your system and to the LUCID Packaging Register.
Service packaging is packaging that is filled at the point of sale and used to enable or support handing over goods to the final consumer.
