EU Packaging - Non-Branded Packaging

Question:

What happens if there is a lot of packaging that is not branded, like shrink wrap and bubble wrap. If this material was not compliant to this regulation in the EU would a company still be considered to be the violating company?


Answer:

Per the document, the packer/ filler or importer of packed or filled packaging is considered responsible. If company V is the party performing those functions on the non-branded packaging, they would be considered responsible for the violation. If that function is being performed by another party, Company V can point to the other party as the violator, but it could still cause problems
