– Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste

8. Main Content
Article 2 of the draft regulation modifies the labelling of packaging with labels of packaging materials from mandatory to voluntary. In the event that the packaging is made of packaging materials listed in Decision 97/129/EC and the manufacturer or packer chooses to label it, the packaging materials identification system provided for in Decision 97/129/EC shall be used for the labelling. However, the acquirer of packaging may import packaging made from packaging materials covered by Decision 97/129/EC, indicating the types of packaging materials used, provided that the identification system for packaging materials provided for in this Decision has been used to identify them.
Other changes are mostly editorial, none of which has an impact on the internal market.

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
‒ protection of the environment,
‒ functioning of the internal market,
‒ preventing barriers to trade and distortions and restrictions of competition.

— until 31 December 2021 the labelling of packaging materials on the packaging is voluntary. The proposal for a Regulation amending the Regulation on packaging and packaging waste abolishes the mandatory labelling of packaging materials on packaging, which is due to enter into force as of 1 January 2021.
