Packaging Compliance in France
Collection and Recycling Arrangements in France
Under the French packaging regulations (specifically Decree no. 94-609 relating to non-household packaging waste), where packaging waste is held by commercial and industrial final holders, it is these final holders who must ensure that it is recovered. The packaging producer is not required to finance the collection and recycling of this waste packaging.
SCIEX places packaging into circulation in France that becomes waste on commercial and industrial premises. SCIEX is therefore not legally required to finance the collection and recycling of this packaging when it becomes waste. Instead, this is the responsibility of SCIEX customers.
SCIEX customers in France can ensure the recovery of the packaging waste by working with a local packaging waste contractor. You may already have arrangements established with a local waste contractor to handle other types of waste. Please contact your existing contractor through whom you may be able to arrange disposal of your packaging waste, or contact your local authority for details of other commercial and industrial waste packaging collection and recycling provisions close to you.
