Your responsibilities

Producers and distributors of goods are obliged by the German packaging ordinance (from 01.01.2019 packaging act) to take care of the frequently organised takeback of all packages put on the market.

Moreover, all the responsible parties are obliged to take care of appropriate sorting and recycling of packaging.

ERP does not offer packaging compliance in Germany, but we recommend to contact our sister company Landbell.

Landbell is an environmental and waste disposal specialist that has been operating a certified and independent packaging scheme (“Duales System”) since August 2003.

Our services are suitable as both an individual service and as a full package for certain industries. They operate nationally and internationally.

EASy-Shop - Our flat-rate Solution for small quantities!

The German Packaging Act, which entered into force in January 2019, obliges all manufacturers and retailers placing packaging on the German market to apply for a licence through a packaging scheme.

The Act, which applies to mail order companies, eBay sellers and operators of small online shops, encompasses all packaging materials and has no minimum threshold – as soon as you place packaging on the German market, then you must join a scheme.

Need to comply? EASy-Shop is a simple online solution with the following advantages:

  • Quick and easy registration – suitable for very small quantities
  • Immediate and full compliance for as little as €75 per year
