Germany: Enforcement of Packaging Legislation

On 09, Dec 2019 | In News @en | By Lisa Schmidt

The German Packaging Register (ZSVR) has announced the tightening of the Packaging Law (VerpackG) enforcement.

The Packaging Law has entered into force on 1 January 2019. According to the ZSVR, now the transitional period has ended. Companies that do not fulfil their manufacturer obligations risk receiving a fine of up to € 200,000. Additionally, the authorities can prohibit non-compliant companies from accessing the market.


Against this background, the ZSVR collaborates closely with the responsible enforcement authorities and constantly reports infringements to them. So far, in 2019 fines between € 15,000 to € 25,000 have been imposed.
