Assistance with EPR Registration (LUCID/CITEO)

EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) is a concept under which manufacturers and importers of products are responsible for managing their products and packaging at every stage of their lifecycle, including sale, recycling, and disposal after use. The LUCID system provides the necessary registration mechanism to comply with this extended producer responsibility in Germany. To fulfill EPR obligations when selling goods in the German market, registration in the LUCID system is required. Additionally, registration with a dual provider is also necessary. They prepare annual utilization reports and invoice for packaging disposal annually. When filling out the registration form, you need to provide your bank IBAN, the account holder’s name, and an approximate quantity of packaging used within a year. After completing the registration process, the dual provider will send you an invoice to the email address you have provided.

CITEO is a French organization specializing in waste management and promoting sustainable resource use. It is the national operator in France, handling the collection, recycling, and disposal of packaging waste. CITEO operates in accordance with the principles of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), obliging manufacturers and importers of packaged goods to take responsibility for managing their products and packaging after use. Similarly, to fulfill EPR obligations when selling goods in the French market, registration with the CITEO system is mandatory.

It is important to emphasize that the cost of the license for LUCID/CITEO is not included in the price of our services. The rates listed on our website are solely for the services we provide. Based on our experience, our clients most frequently register the use of materials such as plastic and cardboard. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the potential expenses for obtaining a license from a dual service provider for LUCID.
