Do you sell packaged goods?

You should be a member of a Collective Extended Producer Responsibility System (SCRAP, in Spanish), like the one provided by Ecoembes, if your business is in charge of introducing household plastic, paper, cardboard, metal, and carton packaging to the market for the first time.

By becoming a circular business in this way, you may use the packaging waste you produce as raw material to create new goods.

Your business must abide by the packaging law if...

  1. You place goods on the market that are likely to reach the final consumer within the national territory and are packaged under your own or a distribution brand.

  2. You make or package goods that are likely to reach the final consumer within the national territory.

  3. You import goods that are likely to reach the final consumer within the national territory.

  4. You are a business that offers a product in addition to bags, wrappers, and trays.

  5. You engage in e-commerce.
