Packaging in Germany - Extended registration obligation as of July 1, 2022

On 03 , May 2022 | In | By Gisa Scheschonka

On July 1, 2022, a new stage of the amendment to the German Packaging Act will come into force. All companies that commercially place packaged goods on the market in Germany must register with the Central Packaging Register.

Until today, the registration obligation was limited to so-called packaging that is subject to system participation. Now, other types of packaging, such as transport packaging or reusable packaging, must also be registered.

Packaging producers are obliged to carry out registration via the LUCID portal of the packaging register by June 30, 2022. The producer must carry out the registration personally. Producers already registered for packaging subject to system participation may supplement their existing registration.

The LUCID portal will enable the new registration for additional packaging types from May 5, 2022.
