EU PACKAGING DIRECTIVE – A business guide

The EU Packaging Directive was adopted in 1994 and later implemented in all EU countries. Therefore, one might assume that companies are familiar with the Directive. However, the situation is quite different, and  nobody is presently able to guide the companies on how to meet the requirements laid down in the Directive. Therefore, together with a number of participating companies, the OPTI-PACK partners offers a guide to other companies through this project, which is carried out by the Nordic Innovasion Centre (NICe).

In this guide the OPTI-PACK interprets a number of rules which are not yet final. The guide focuses on a number of texts that companies have found difficult to understand, and translates them into practical, understandable methods. On top of that, a large number of companies have gained financial benefits as well from using the guide.
