Am I responsible for the packaging?

At Ecoembes we are working to care for the environment, our reason for being. To this end, we help companies comply with their environmental responsibility under the Law on Packaging and Packaging Waste, which is intended to prevent and reduce the environmental impact of packaging and to manage this waste.

Your company is subject to the Law on Packaging and Packaging Waste if it...

  •  
    Sells products

    packaged under its own or a distribution brand that can reach the final consumer on Spanish territory.

  •  
    Packages/Makes and sells

    products that can reach the final consumer on Spanish territory.

  •  
    Imports and sells

    packaged products that can reach the final consumer on Spanish territory.

If at least one of these conditions applies to your company, you are subject to the Law on Packaging and Packaging Waste and your company is responsible for properly handling the household packaging it markets either by joining the Ecoembes Integrated Management System (SIG) or a Deposit and Return System.

Your company is required to have a Packaging Waste Prevention Plan if…

It exceeds any of the following thresholds for the weight of the packaging marketed, pursuant to RD 782/1998 and Law 11/1997 on Packaging and Packaging Waste, which affects companies that package or that import packaged products:

These thresholds consider packaging intended for household, commercial and industrial use generated over the course of one year.
