How to submit data reports on packaging volumes

System data reporting

The systems are required by law to file the participated packaging volumes as a control report to the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR). The ZSVR compares the data with the volume reports of the companies submitted in the LUCID Packaging Register and thus quickly uncovers deviations. Based on their reports, the ZSVR also calculates the systems' market share. Click here for more information.
