Understanding EPR Germany – A Guide For Businesses

The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) rules in Germany require businesses involved in the production, import, and sale of various goods to comply with the policy. Introduced by the German government, EPR holds manufacturers, importers, and retailers accountable for the environmental impact of their products, including disposal and recycling. This policy applies to all companies operating in Germany, regardless of size or packaging handling. The EPR system in Germany includes the Packaging Act, the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act, and the Battery Act. It covers packaging materials, electrical and electronic equipment, and batteries. To comply, businesses must identify if their products fall under the regulated categories.
