Are you Affected by the German Packaging Act (VerpackG)?
Contains advertising links: You are a producer, distributor, or e-commerce vendor and sell your packaged goods to the German market?
Are these packaged products meant to be for consumers and are likely to be shipped to private households?
If you can answer both questions with yes, you need to get a packaging license for the packaging materials of your products that you ship to Germany. This is because the German Packaging Act obliges all producers, distributors, or online retailers to pay their share for recycling their packaging materials that end up in German domestic waste. Therefore, you need to declare your yearly packaging quantities (in kg) in Germany and get a packaging license for those quantities.

Why You Should Compare Prices
The costs for a packaging license differ quite a lot. In some constellations of packaging materials and volumes, prices can differ more than 300% for a single year! Besides the price, also cancellation policies and periods of notice are different as well. Finally, there are some providers that offer refunds, if the packaging volumes are lower than expected at the end of a year.
As there is a free choice of the provider, we always advise producers and distributors to check the conditions of more than just one dual system. That’s where we can help you with. We have set up Verpackungslizenz24 as a free tool for everyone who is affected by the German Packaging Act, to find a lightweight and easy solution for the packaging license.
The Providers For the License
In general, there are two types of companies where you can get a German packaging license. Either obtain it directly from one of the dual systems that are organizing the collection of packaging waste and recycle them or get it from brokers/agents who are not recycling the materials themselves but commission a recycling business or a dual system for the quantities they provided licenses for. Below, we provide a list of all official providers that are legally entitled to offer packaging licenses.
The Grüner Punkt packaging license shop impresses with its simple and very intuitive handling. Together with the many years of experience and really low prices, the Grüner Punkt offers an excellent solution for the topic of packaging licensing.
