Abstract

This Decree, based on the provisions of the Slovenian Environmental Protection Act, has the objective to comply with the terms of European Parliament and Council Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste (including its related amending legislation). This Decree lays down rules and conditions for the production of packaging, its use, placing on the market in the Republic of Slovenia and distribution, and rules for packaging waste management, including rules and conditions for the re-use of packaging, collection, recycling and other recovery procedures for packaging waste in order to minimize the disposal of packaging waste, thus contributing to the transition to a circular economy. This Decree shall apply to all packaging, regardless of the packaging material used, which is placed on the market in the Republic of Slovenia and used in industry, crafts, trade, services and other activities, households or elsewhere, unless regulations regulate the quality of packaging, do not set different requirements for each type of packaging, for example regarding the safety, health and hygiene of packaged products, or unless the regulations governing the transport of goods provide otherwise. This Decree shall apply to all packaging waste, regardless of the packaging material generated in the territory of the Republic of Slovenia in industry, crafts, trade, services and other activities, households or elsewhere, unless regulations governing hazardous waste the type of packaging waste or the individual handling of packaging waste is not determined differently.
