This chapter is not intended to be read from one end to the other. It is a kind of ”dictionary” or manual, where you can be inspired and get ideas as how to deal with the task.
Each of the following sections refer to the form found in EN13428. The idea is, that if a company wishes to use a certain argumentation for the optimization, Chapter 6 shows some concrete methods which the company can use. So this guide only deals with the argumentation referred to in the form in EN 13428. Therefore the companies must obtain all standards in order to meet the requirements of the Packaging Directive. These standards can be obtained from the national standardization organisations.
OPTI-PACK has made its own version of the form, because the standardization organisations have copyright on standards.
