For individual queries, please use the public register of producers.
The register excerpt will not tell you if your business partners have participated in a system with their packaging that is subject to system participation. System participation has to be verified by other means – and the legislator has left it up to you to choose how. One possible way mentioned in the explanatory memorandum to the Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act) is to have your business partner present you with a certificate issued by a system. This certificate would serve to confirm that your business partner has entered into a system participation agreement.
- The ZSVR will then need to activate the register excerpt function. This may take a few days to complete.
- Once your login has been activated, you can access an XML file containing the following producer data:
- VAT number or taxpayer reference number
- Company name
- Registration number
- Details about packaging (subject to system participation and not subject to system participation)
Please note: the registration requirement for packaging not subject to system participation will enter into force on 1 July 2022. Until that date, the register excerpt will only include registration details belonging to companies that have registered in the LUCID Packaging Register with packaging that is subject to system participation. Starting 1 July 2022, the register excerpt will also include companies that have registered with packaging that is not subject to system participation.
