Slovak government tightens national packaging ordinance from 2021 on

The Slovak government tightens their national packaging ordinance and introduces some changes from January 2021 on.

Starting in 2021 all contracts between take back schemes and producers/distributors will have a minimum contract period of 2 years. In addition to that producers that cancel a contract will have to sign a new contract by 31st of October of that same year.

Possible fines of non-compliance with those new requirements range from 4.000 € up to 350.000 €.
