Why do I need to take care of the packaging licensing in Germany (myself)?

Since 01.01.2019, it is mandatory for manufacturers to register with the official packaging register LUCID to register and pay the produced waste quantities as part of a dual system. The packaging law generally refers to the obligated first distributors as “manufacturers”. Depending on the individual case, this includes producers, dealers, importers, online and mail order companies and other initial distributors. The relevant factor here is the initial marketing – which is why this licensing obligation (unlike in other EU countries) cannot be fulfilled by SPACEGOATS.
