Metal beverage packaging of 3 litres or less
Decree of [date] amending the 2014 Packaging Management Decree regarding the inclusion of a target for the separate collection of metal beverage packaging and the introduction of deposits on metal beverage packaging (Decree on measures for metal beverage packaging)
The draft measure requires:
1. A producer or importer who places beverages in metal beverage packaging with a volume of 3 litres or less on the market in the Netherlands to collect separately in each calendar year at least 90 % by weight of the total amount of this metal beverage packaging placed on the market in the Netherlands by the producer or importer in that calendar year (Article I(B)).
2. A producer or importer who places beverages in metal beverage packaging with a volume of 3 litres or less on the market in the Netherlands to charge deposits on such beverage packaging and to accept returns of such packaging after use with repayment of the deposit. (Article I(D)).
A mutual recognition clause is not needed as the requirements of the draft measure do not cause foreign products to be denied market access.
