Lucid and EPR registration

Do you sell products in Germany through stores, a web shop or marketplaces and thus market packaging? Then you are required to join a Dual System such as (step 1) and register with the LUCID packaging registry (step 2). If you sell on marketplaces, you then provide the EPR registration number you receive from LUCID to Amazon and other marketplaces (step 3).

If you don't, you risk an export ban, a fine of up to 200,000 euros and Amazon taking your products offline.

To whom does this apply?

The registration requirement initially applies only to producers who use cardboard packaging. So if your brand is on the packaging, it is very likely that you are responsible for recycling and registration. This includes both primary and secondary packaging (shipping packaging). For example, consider shoes in a shoe box. The shoe goes into a shoebox; this is the primary packaging. A number of shoe boxes are then placed in a large outer box, the secondary packaging. From Jan. 1, 2023, EPR registration will also apply to producers of electrical and electronic equipment from the ElektroG, and producers of batteries from the BattG.

If you are not a manufacturer, but you do sell products covered by the EPR regulations, you must request the EPR registration number from the supplier. This is, for example, the wholesaler who has already imported the products. If you do not get the EPR registration number from the supplier, but still sell the products in question, you must register the registration number yourself.
