Packaging Compliance in Germany
Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Germany
Under the German Ordinance on the Avoidance of Packaging Waste (VerpackV), SCIEX is required to finance the collection and recycling of packaging SCIEX supplies to the German market when it becomes waste. There are different requirements placed on SCIEX, depending on whether the packaging is classed as Sales packaging, or Transport (and commercial Sales) Packaging.
For packaging that becomes waste and is disposed of in waste streams similar to households, SCIEX participates in a 'Dual System', and the fees that SCIEX pays to the Dual System help to fund the collection of waste packaging disposed of via waste streams similar to households. SCIEX participates in the Dual System run by Interseroh. You can contact Interseroh for further information about the Dual System; Interseroh: (+49 2203 9147 1966, email@example.com)
Transport (and commercial Sales) Packaging
For packaging that is not disposed of in waste streams similar to households, SCIEX has contracted with Interseroh to take back this packaging from SCIEX customers, when requested. If you hold packaging that was used to package SCIEX products supplied to you and this packaging cannot be disposed of in waste streams similar to household waste streams, you can request SCIEX to collect this packaging from you for recycling. You can either contact Interseroh using the alternative contact details below, or you can contact SCIEX and we will liaise with Interseroh to organise the collection.
