New registration obligation for packaging in Spain

The Spanish packaging law obliges producers to register their packaging. Distributors from abroad must also register through an authorised representative if they sell packaged products in Spain.


Producer Information on batteries according to Section 4 (4) ElektroG3

All producers or distributors of electrical and electronic equipment containing a battery or accumulator are required to provide information to the end-user of the type and chemical system of the battery or accumulator and of its safe removal.

The basis for this is provided by Section 4 (4) of the new Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act version 3 (ElektroG3) scheduled to take effect on 1 January 2022 (previously this was to be found in Section 28 (2)).

By that date, you must already be prepared accordingly if you or your devices are affected.

A template for information under Section 4 (4) ElektroG is available here.

Feel free to use and complete the free template to meet your obligation to provide information. If you are uncertain and would prefer to be supported in this regard, our complete artwork check will assist you. In return for 350 euros, we will perform a non-recurring check of your product labelling, manual and packaging in the context of legal, technical, statutory and standard-specific information.
