Marketplace Sellers Solution

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy that makes producers responsible for the entire life cycle of the products that they introduce on the market, from their design until end of life (including waste collection and recycling).

Under EPR regulations, liable companies must mitigate the environmental impacts of their products throughout the entire product life cycle.

Starting in Austria on January 1, 2023, Marketplaces must confirm that are complying with Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations in the country where they are selling.

  • to and including 5 litres, or in the case of packaging made of expanded polystyrene (EPS – e.g. Polysterene), a mass of up to and including up to 0.15 kg per sales unit and usually occurs
  • in private households or
  • in places comparable to households with regard to the packaging generated.
  • Furthermore, service packaging, carrier bags and knotted bags shall in any case be deemed to be household packaging, irrespective of their size.

Packaging made of Paper, cardboard, paperboard and corrugated cardboard packaging that meets the definition of sales packaging shall, irrespective of their size, be deemed to be household packaging, irrespective of its size, provided that point 2 applies.

Industrial Packaging

Industrial packaging is

  • packaging that is not household packaging,
  • paper packaging that meets the definition of transport packaging,
  • pallets and strapping and adhesive tapes, and
  • the proportion of packaging which in principle meets the definition of household packaging but which, by the packaging classification ordinance, is considered to be transport packaging.

Sales packaging or primary packaging is offered to the end consumer as a sales unit.

Outer packaging or secondary packaging – insofar as they do not fall under sales packaging or transport packaging – is packaging which:

  • contains one or more sales units which are sold together to the final consumer or serve only to stock the sales shelves, and
  • can be removed without affecting the characteristics of the goods.
