The easy way to license your packaging – online, right here & right now

Companies that place packaging onto the German market are obliged to license these materials in accordance with the German Packaging Act [VerpackG]. Getting businesses to license their packaging is an important tool for ensuring that these materials are collected and recycled properly after they’ve been used.

The EASY-LIZE packaging licensing scheme is a quick and easy way for companies to license the packaging they place onto the market. Simply use our innovative packaging licence fee calculator. This online licensing tool uses the information entered about the different volumes of packaging materials (e.g. paper/cardboard, plastics, aluminium, glass) to calculate the licence costs.

License your packaging in a few simple steps

  • Select the types of packaging material
  • Select the materials that can be found in your packaging (packaging which has to be licensed). You can choose between the following categories of material here: glass, paper/card/cardboard, ferrous metals, aluminium, plastics, composite drinks cartons, other types of composite packaging, and other materials (e.g. cork)
  • Enter the volumes of packaging material
    Enter the volumes of the different types of packaging materials being placed onto the market into our licence fee calculator.
    Tip: information about the volumes of packaging materials you handle can be found on your suppliers’ invoices.
  • Calculate your licence costs
    The calculator automatically works out your licence costs based on the volumes of packaging materials you entered.
  • Enter your customer details
    Enter your contact and invoicing details. Tip: have your LUCID number, VAT ID and/or Tax ID numbers ready to use before you start. 
  • License your packaging
    You can now license your packaging online with just a single click. Once this step has been completed, you’ll be sent confirmation that your packaging (which must be licensed with a system) is now part of a licensing system in accordance with the German Packaging Act. What’s more, you’ll also receive a personalised carbon certificate that shows your individual contribution towards curbing climate change (as COequivalents).

Why it’s so important to license packaging

Packaging is a key part of any business, whether it be needed for transporting or storing products. But with it comes a responsibility for the environment. Packaging must be recycled or disposed of properly to prevent it having a negative impact on the environment. To make sure this happens, companies must meet a number of specific obligations that have been set out in the German Packaging Act [VerpackG].

All packaging that ends up at private end consumers must be licensed. Companies that place packaging onto the market are required by law to license this packaging. The German Packaging Act stipulates that these companies must participate in a Dual System and license their packaging. This step ensures that this packaging is collected and recycled properly. By taking part in this licensing scheme, you – as a company – are financing the collection and recycling of your packaging.

Besides being a legal obligation, licensing packaging materials is also important for the environment. Recycling the packaging helps to conserve huge volumes of natural resources. This licensing scheme can also have a financial impact on businesses. Companies that fail to license their packaging may be issued heavy fines and penalties.

Licensing packaging materials certainly has its benefits as well. Companies that license their packaging can present themselves as a green and responsible business. You can, for example, add your certificate of participation and/or your carbon certificate to your company documents and website. This not only helps further improve your company’s image but also helps to bolster your reputation with your customers and business partners.

So who is actually responsible for making sure that packaging is licensed in accordance with the rules and regulations? First and foremost, it is the manufacturers of this packaging. They must ensure that their packaging is licensed in accordance with the German Packaging Act and with a Dual System. However, it’s not just manufacturers that have obligations. Importers and retailers handling packed goods also have a responsibility to make sure that the packaging of their products is licensed and registered with a Dual System.
