The EU Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste (94/62/EC) restricts the presence of certain heavy metals in packaging (Hg, Pb, Cr6+, Cd) with the goal of protecting the environment from hazardous substances and materials. The EU Packaging Directive also includes requirements for registration, reporting, and recycling in each EU Member State where a company is considered the producer. This EU Directive scope covers all household, commercial, and industrial packaging waste in the European Union market.
