Commencing 1st January 2023, a new packaging law is in force in Italy.
The obligation comes under Decree No. 116, dated 3rd September 2020, requiring mandatory labelling to be placed on packaging materials of all primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging that can be separated.
The aim is to facilitate collection, reuse, recovery, and recycling, reducing the impact of packaging and packaging waste on the environment whilst ensuring a certain level of environmental protection.
The material used for the packaging must be indicated by an alphanumeric code according to the Annexes in 97/129/EC, for example:
|High Density polyethylene
|Low Density polyethylene
|Centre Core (in Tapes)
|Plastic/Aluminium Laminated Film
