take-e-way already reported that every retail shop is required to register packaging.
buchreport.de now informs that publishers and bookshops that send packaged goods to end customers must also register in the LUCID packaging register. Previously, this only applied to manufacturers of packaging, but since July it has also applied, for example, to bookshops with online shops and to publishers. Without registration, there is a risk of fines or a ban on operation. Intermediaries or publishing house distributors must request registration from their customers, otherwise neither books nor other goods may be shipped, and this rule has been in place since 1 July 2022.
The take-e-way consultancy team will be glad to answer any questions you may have on the Packaging Act. Please call +49/40/750687-0 or send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
