Recycling Label Review & Advisory Service for Packaging (Electrical & Electronic Products)

Recycling Label Review & Advisory Service for Packaging (Electrical & Electronic Products)

Service Scope

In recent years, a variety of measures have been adopted by governments, authorities, and businesses to address environmental-related issues. One of the topics is using environmental symbols to convey packaging characteristics and handling information for consumers. Hence, there is an increasing number of symbols, logos, or pictograms that can be found on the packaging over the market, both voluntary and mandatory.

New directives, regulations, and guidance are popping up all over the world. For example:

  • EU published Directive (EU) 2018/852 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 amending Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste
  • France, Italy, and other member states have adopted the directive and updated their packaging law respectively

Yet, the requirements and the use of the symbols are not harmonized between countries & jurisdictions, stakeholders are confused to figure out strictly which and how to use these symbols, especially for those having a broad target market.

Our Global Packaging Environmental Labelling services can help you to cope with the requirements in global major markets.
