What are the regulations?

Driven by the European Green deal and the New Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP)

France and Italy’s introduction of mandated unique product packaging recycle logos and recycle logos on products stems from their commitment to address environmental concerns and promote sustainable practices.

These initiatives are part of a broader trend across Europe, driven by the European Green deal and the New Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP)

The implementation of recycle logos aims to create a culture of responsible consumption and waste reduction among consumers, aligning with EU directives for a more sustainable economy.

France and Italy were the first countries to launch their logos in 2022, called Triman in France, the rest of Europe are mandated to follow, along with the UK. Currently, it is illegal to sell in France or Italy, whether via a bricks and mortar retailer, online retailer such as Amazon or direct to consumer without the correct logos. Fines range from €40k in Italy to 10% of global turnover in France.

Meeting both printed packaging and digital requirements

Standards do vary per country

Italy Recycle codes can be delivered printed on pack or behind a QR code.

France Recycle logo requirements depend on the size of your product. Smaller products just need a QR code, however larger products do require more printed graphics to become legal. The Buyerdock logo generator will help you identify the exact requirements for your packaging.

It is important to note that due to EU law, logos cannot be displayed via a downloadable app, the law states that you cannot know who the consumer is before they have seen the recycle logos. They also need by law to see the logos within just one click after scanning.

The Buyerdock iQRcode™ takes your customer directly to a web-app respecting these laws, none of your consumers personal data is collected upon opening the moreinfo.io app. Recycling information is accessed in just one click. The web-app also automatically detects the country scanned in and shows the web-app in the correct language.
