New subject-specific paper: What is considered packaging under the Verpackungsgesetz (packaging act)?


When does an item qualify as packaging, and which criteria must be reviewed when determining its packaging status?

In most cases, it is obvious if a certain item is packaging or not. There are, however, individual cases where this question cannot be answered conclusively at first glance. The ZSVR's new subject-specific paper gives guidance on how to delineate packaging from non-packaging. If a test item qualifies as packaging, it must then be determined whether it is subject to system participation. This is where the system participation requirement catalogue can help.
