EPR packaging deadline for Amazon.de

eBay EPR France Pay On Behalf EPR requirements in Spain

The EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) deadline in Germany is fast approaching, but you need to be aware that Amazon’s deadline is just four weeks away, two weeks ahead of the legal deadline. If you send packaged goods to Germany or sell goods on Amazon.de in any form of packaging (product or shipping package), you need to provide your LUCID number for the EPR Packaging category by the 14th of June. Failure to do so will mean that your sales come to a shuddering halt.

Amazon will start blocking non-compliant listings on the 15th of June 2022, to comply with the EPR legal requirement that comes into effect on the 1st of July 2022.

Your EPR obligations

  1. Go to the EPR Reports page to download detailed information on sales of your products subject to EPR regulations, including packaging for Germany.
  2. Check the Verpackungsregister guide to determine if your packaging is also subject to system participation. You may be required to enter a contract with one or more packaging schemes (also referred to as “system participation contract”).

If you are subject to system participation, you must declare your packaging both to the schemes and to the German authority Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (ZSVR). In addition, you will need to pay fees to your respective schemes for the applicable reporting periods.
