Waste Framework Directive: Bundesrat approves amendments to the ElektroG, VerpackG and product responsibility of dealers regarding returns
On 9 October 2020, Germany’s upper house (Bundesrat) approved the implementation of the new EU Waste Framework Directive into German law. The objective is to further develop the Circular Economy Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz) ecologically in order to improve resource management and resource efficiency in Germany and, in particular, to reinforce and intensify waste avoidance. In this connection, the Bundesrat approved amendments to the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG), the Packaging Act (VerpackG) as well as product responsibility of dealers regarding returns.
On 14 October 2020, the European Commission adopted the EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. The strategy is the first step towards the zero-emissions target for a pollution-free environment announced as part of the European Green Deal. The strategy will foster and promote innovative solutions for safe and sustainable chemicals and increase the level of protection of humans and the environment from hazardous chemicals. This includes a ban on the most harmful chemicals in consumer products such as toys, childcare articles, cosmetics, detergents, food contact materials and textiles, unless they can be shown to be essential for the general good or public welfare.
Packaging Act: Depending on their contents, envelopes are packaging items that require system participation
The German Central Agency Packaging Register (ZSVR) classifies envelopes as subject to system participation. Evidently the decisive factor is their contents. If only notices and information such as invoices were sent, these would not be packaging items requiring mandatory system participation. If, however, in addition to an invoice, advertising flyers, brochures, leaflets and other printed advertising materials are sent, then the envelope is considered to be packaging filled with merchandise and is therefore subject to mandatory system participation. This applies irrespective of the envelope selected and concerns padded and classic envelopes featuring a window if they contain “merchandise”.
