Packaging Act admonitions to private sellers

The lawyers demand the submission of a cease-and-desist order and a declaration of obligation, the reimbursement of the costs incurred by the test purchase as well as the reimbursement of the legal fees incurred.

Anwalt.de reports on a current case of a person who has received an admonition and is registered as a “private seller” on eBay, but is classified as a commercial seller by the other party’s lawyer due to his high number of ratings. He is therefore obliged to register in accordance with Section 9 I of the German Packaging Act (VerpackG), which the seller, however, failed to do. This results in a violation of Section 9 V VerpackG and of competition law, which was determined in the course of a test purchase.

The lawyers demand the submission of a cease-and-desist order and a declaration of obligation, the reimbursement of the costs incurred by the test purchase as well as the reimbursement of the legal fees incurred.
