With Interzero, companies have a competent partner for pan-European packaging licensing at their side – from the analysis to the operational handling of their legal take-back obligations.

As a company doing business internationally, you face a set of unique challenges due to the implementation of the EU Packaging Directive 94/62/EC and the resulting individual legislations in your respective European sales countries:
- There is no Europe-wide central reporting and registration office for packaging, the licensing models differ from country to country.
- More than 28 relevant legal texts and over 100 different take-back systems do exist in the European countries.
- Only a few laws are available in English, the texts are published in more than 20 different languages.
- The legislation is inconsistent, especially in terms of minimum quantities, but might also affect small-quantity distributors in individual countries.
- There is a high risk of unintentional non-compliance and its associated penalties.
- We analyse your legal obligations in accordance with the respective individual national legislation.
- We select the appropriate European licensing and take-back system for you, chosen from our strong European network, and take over the registration for you.
- We handle the entire contract management for you and take care of all communication with our foreign licensing system partners.
- We carry out the legally required notifications and further reporting for you.
- We identify and implement steps to maintain your compliance.
