RG - EU Packaging - Non-Compliance Fines or Penalties

Question:

Are you aware of any instances of fines or penalties due to non compliance with this regulation?

Answer:

Apparently there aren’t any enforcement actions on record. "For example, Oxfordshire Trading Standards confirmed to us that they had not one enforcement case on record. Over-packaging, which the regulations seek to prevent, is a common consumer complaint, but enforcement is difficult as it can be argued that it is necessary for the protection of the product or its presentation and marketing."
