German Battery Law

Germany converted the European Battery Directive 2006 / 66 / EG into a national law. The Battery Law (BattG) took effect on 1 December 2009 and applies to all types of batteries and batteries. The law requires sellers to be responsible for selling batteries and recycling used batteries.

Under BattG Law, the seller must register with a recycling body and file quarterly declarations. In addition, the BattG law also requires a yearly summary to be filed.

The purpose of batting is to increase the percentage of batteries that are returned. This is because batteries contain valuable raw materials as well as substances that are environmental and health hazards. The BattG law extends the responsibility of manufacturers for the batteries they place on the market to cover the entire life cycle of their equipment.

It, therefore, requires manufacturers, distributors or importers of batteries who must contribute to the cost of disposing of them. Companies are obliged to take back the batteries they have placed on the market and dispose of them in accordance with specific environmental standards.

German Packaging Act

The German packaging Act, otherwise known as Verpackungsgesetz, or VerpackG.

 

This new Packaging Law came into force in 2019 and the so-called Central Agency Packaging Register (LUCID) monitor the market with the help of a register that companies have to sign up for before they start selling products with packaging.

The Packing and Packaging Act requires manufacturers, distributors or importers of packaging or packaged products to contribute to the cost of waste disposal. Germany has incorporated its packaging act into German Law. It is therefore mandatory for manufacturers or sellers, putting products on the German market that use packaging, including external packaging, final retail packaging, food industry containers, and transport packaging materials, to register and obtain a recycling license. The packaging law states that it is mandatory for all sellers to declare product packaging materials using material type (i.e. paper, cardboard, plastic) and weight.

Businesses selling goods in the German market that fail to comply with the German Packaging Act can face fines of up to 50,000 euros and a ban on sales.
