STFI-Packforsk

In Sweden a number of companies have formed the Trade & Industry Group Miljöpack to work jointly with the Essential Requirements of the Packaging Directive. Miljöpack works in parallel to the packaging recovery organisation REPA and the material companies.

Packforsk-Miljöpack

Some of Miljöpack’s important objectives are to:

·        give support to companies when they implement routines for evaluating the conformity with the Essential Requirements of the Packaging Directive

·        be a contact body between the members and the authorities

·        follow new and future rules and regulations connected to this area, in Sweden as well as in the EU

·        follow and try to influence changes of the Directive and its application

 

Miljöpack has the confidence of the Swedish National Environmental Protection Agency. In a letter, the agency has stated that if the group gets a wide appeal in the trade and industry, no detailed legislation with ensuing governmental control need to be introduced in Sweden.

 

The Trade & Industry Group Miljöpack invites all companies to participate.
