New Swedish packaging legislation from 2023 on

The new producer responsibility regulation for packaging in Sweden came into force on January 1st 2023.

The Swedish government has decided to make some amendments to the packaging regulation. The core aim was to remove some exceptions for foreign producers and therefore close a loophole.

This means that formerly excluded foreign online sellers are now directly liable and have to ensure packaging compliance for their packaging being sold and sent to Swedish business and household clients.

If you are affected by the new Swedish packaging compliance obligations feel free to contact the Go4Recycling Team anytime.
