As a manufacturer introducing packaging with system participation obligations in Germany, you are legally required to license your packaging and thus finance its disposal and recycling. In this Help Center article, we will show you how to fulfill your obligations under the Packaging Act and avoid potential fines and automatic distribution bans by using Lizenzero.de for your packaging licensing.
Step 1: Registration in the LUCID Packaging Register
Registration in the LUCID Packaging Register is the first step in fulfilling your legal obligations. If you are not yet registered, visit the official website of the Packaging Register and follow the instructions for registration.
Step 2: Conclusion of a System Participation Contract
To license your packaging, you must conclude a system participation contract. With Lizenzero.de, we offer you a simple and fast solution to conclude this contract and thus involve your packaging quantities in a dual system.
Go directly to our calculator and follow the instructions to conclude your system participation contract. Make sure that you conclude the appropriate contracts for both past years and current and future periods.
Step 3: Reporting Data in the LUCID Packaging Register
After you have involved your packaging in a dual system, you must report your system-related packaging quantities in the LUCID Packaging Register in accordance with Section 10 of the Packaging Act. To do this, log in to your LUCID account and enter the corresponding packaging quantities.
By following the steps mentioned above and using Lizenzero.de for your packaging licensing, you fulfill your legal obligations under the Packaging Act and avoid potential fines and automatic distribution bans.
