Our partner Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA) has reminded its customers of the changes in the Austrian Waste Management Act and the Packaging Ordinance, which came into force on 1 January 2023 (VerpackVO 2021 § 16a). The background to this is that a large number of sellers and producers who were previously active on the Austrian market are still not registered with an authorised representative. take-e-way had already informed about the new obligations as early as September 2022.
In these cases, it is already mandatory by law that the declaration for 2023 be made by an authorised representative domiciled in Austria. You cannot submit a declaration for 2023 without a duly registered, authorised representative. Please note that this means that goods you deliver to your Austrian customers are no longer licensed as required by Austrian law.
You can find more information on this topic and on the appropriate authorised representative solution from our get-e-right Austria GmbH (Vienna) branch at https://www.get-e-right.at/en/authorised-representative-packaging
