German state authorities and the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) are working together more closely: the new LUCID Authorities Portal is making the way they collaborate faster and more goal oriented.
The ZSVR is advancing the progress of strategic digitalisation. The new LUCID Authorities Portal has been available since 12 April 2021. Transmitting evidence is becoming simpler and more secure. The portal automatically generates a digital file of suspected administrative offences that have been identified for state authorities.
The vast majority of state authority employees and their respective supervisory authorities have their own personalised logins to the portal. In the portal, they can download and work on the suspected cases documented there, speeding up the enforcement process. At the same time, LUCID uses an encryption technology that significantly increases data security compared to transmitting suspected cases the traditional way by e-mail.
The ZSVR has two overriding objectives: the recycling market has to function and the Verpackungsgesetz (Packaging Act) has to be effective.
The LUCID Authorities Portal functions in two directions. The way enforcement authorities and the ZSVR work together has been strengthened significantly. The ZSVR makes data sets available and the enforcement authorities are able to actively look up information held by the ZSVR themselves. The processing agents can also submit a request for file inspection if there are grounds to suspect that a company has partially or fully failed to comply with its obligations under the Packaging Act. In future, it will also be possible to view an entire case history on the portal.
Connected authorities can set up individual assessments and access data so that enforcement proceedings can be pursued in a targeted way at the state level. In the medium term, there are plans to make information about packaging collection volumes and volume flow reports from the systems available to the enforcement authorities.
Compliance and enforcement are extremely important to the impact of the Packaging Act. Since 2019, the ZSVR has identified approximately 6,000 administrative offences.
