ZSVR launches English website


The website of the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) has been fully available in English since 19 June 2020. It can be accessed at: www.verpackungsregister.org/en/.

Under 'Information & Orientation', 'LUCID Packaging Register' and 'Foundation & Authority', visitors will find most of the information about obligations relating to the Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act) in English. Subpages that have to do with administrative procedure law – such as the issuance of classification decisions, related applications, case report publications and the system participation requirement catalogue – are available exclusively in German for legal reasons. Most introductory texts and documents that are meant to help with meeting requirements that touch on administrative procedure law are available in English; they include an additional notice concerning their legal effect.
