Following the Federal Cabinet's counterstatement to the recommendations of the Federal Council, which was adopted on March 17, 2021, it seems clear that the Federal Government intends to push its draft amendment to the German Packaging Act through the legislative process almost unchanged. With a view to the planned entry into force on July 3, 2021, the following voting process is thus likely:

 

  •     March 25: 1st reading Bundestag (German Federal Parliament)
  •     April 14: Hearing Bundestag
  •     April 21: Committee decision
  •     May 7: 2nd/3rd reading Bundestag
  •     May 28: Federal Council
  •     July 3: Entry into force
