Packaging Law Compliance Requirements

The relevant French environmental law (L. 541-10) applies the principle of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to all ‘producers’ introducing regulated materials such as packaging into the French market. All producers are required to register with the relevant administrative authority to obtain a unique identifier (UID).

Additionally, for each category of products falling within the scope of EPR regulations, producers must make an annual declaration to the relevant administrative authority regarding the following:

1. Proof of their membership in ecological organisations or the establishment of individual systems (‘dual-system’ approach for waste disposal/management)

2. Data of the products placed on the market, including the proportion of recycled materials incorporated into these products

3. Data on the waste management of these products, specifying material flows where applicable

4. Relevant data on the quantitative and qualitative objectives for waste prevention, and any ongoing monitoring measures taken.
