Attention new German Packaging Act (VerpackG)! "Manufacturers" within the meaning of the law, including online retailers and operators of small online shops, must participate in a dual system such as Der Grüne Punkt and register with the Central Packaging Registry (ZSVR). Who does not do that, risks warning and in the long run selling prohibition (VerpackG § 9)! Do you still have to participate and register for 2019 or even for 2018? There is already no more time to waste, but with Der Grüne Punkt you are still in good hands: Click here on "License calculator", participate your packaging in a legally binding form and register with the ZSVR with support.
