New labelling obligation for packaging in Italy from 2022 on

The packaging law in Italy has been amended and there are some important changes. All companies that put packaging onto the Italian market have to show an alphanumeric code on their packaging. This code includes e.g. the coding of the material, the type of packaging etc.

Furthermore clear instructions for disposal must be added to all sales packaging intended for end consumers.

There is a transition period until 31.12.2021.

The Italian consortium CONAI has published a guideline that can be downloaded on their homepage – and for all further questions please feel free to contact the Go4Recycling team at any time.
