Packaging companies or importers of packaged products are obliged to carry out a Packaging Waste Prevention Plan if their domestic, commercial and industrial containers generated over a year and placed on each EU country market exceed any of the following packaging weight thresholds, as established by National Law (in Spain the Royal Decree 782/1998 developed by Law 11/1997 on Containers and Packaging Waste), which affects:
• Glass: 250 tons
• Steel: 50 tons
• Aluminium: 30 tons
• Plastic: 21 tons
• Wood: 16 tons
• Cardboard or composite materials: 14 tons
If the container has several materials and each material does not exceed the previous limits, the thresholds would be 350tons in total.
