System participation

Are you placing packaging on the German market that is filled with goods and subject to system participation? For example retail, grouped or shipment packaging? To fulfil your producer responsibility, you do not only have to register with the LUCID Packaging Register, but must also pay for the recovery and recycling of your packaging. This means that you have to enter into a contractual agreement with one or more system(s). An overview of the systems can be found here.
