How to fulfil your obligations in Germany
What urgently needs to be done from you now (if not already fulfilled):
Central Agency Packaging Register (LUCID) registration and Dual scheme (EASyShop contract)
Attention: both steps need to be completed, if you only register at LUCID or only at Landbell, your compliance is not completed. We have marked each step of the process that must be done.
The information provided in your registration must be correct and must correspond with the information provided to your marketplace. Please refer to the LUCID website for legal, financial and administrational consequences in case of provision of no or wrong data.
1. LUCID – Go to the LUCID registration page for producers*:
*Before starting the registration please ensure to have the following data available (or see the LUCID checklist):
- Responsible manager of the company
- Details of person submitting reports and contact (if possible, please also provide recovery contact for case of PTO, leaving company or just sick leave)
- E-mail address & self-chosen password
- Address of the company
- Value added tax identification number (VAT ID)
- National identification number (e.g. commercial register number)
- Listing of all brand names sold in Germany
- Planned annual quantities in the LUCID account and in the dual system must always match; the Central Agency Packaging Register will check this. In case quantities need to be adjusted – also for your quantity report-, these changes must be done with both, your dual system AND also with LUCID in your LUCID account (“Data report”).
2. LUCID – Create a login
3. LUCID – You will receive an activation link from LUCID. Please do not forget to activate the link within 24 hours. After activation, you can log in to the LUCID database at https://lucid.verpackungsregister.org and continue your registration.
4. LUCID – Completion of the registration in the LUCID account (you must complete 4 different registers: “Master data”, “Packaging details”, “Brand names” and “Summary”). Before you submit your registration, you must confirm that you are fulfilling your take-back obligation through participation with a dual system (Landbell).
5. LUCID will instantly send you a confirmation of your registration incl. your producer number (= EPR number) commencing with DE + 13 digits.
6. Landbell – Return to the License packaging at www.landbell-marketplace-seller.com and choose the button “Get your contract here”. Complete the form to create an account and buy the contract for the required period → this is the 2nd legal obligation of the VerpackG. You must join a Producer Responsibility Organisation (Landbell in this case). Please note that your EASyShop contract will only become valid after receipt of payment (electronic payment normally clears overnight).
7. LUCID – For the reporting: Please log on to your LUCID account, choose “Data report”. If you conclude the system participation contract and the registration right now for the current year, select “intra-year volume report”, then select reporting period and “Landbell” as your system operator and, finally, enter your annual planned quantities with the respective material types.
8. Landbell – After contract validation, please log in to your EASyShop account and submit your planned volumes report (Volume reporting à Planned volumes (grey box on the left of the page).
AND DON´T FORGET:
9. Please remember also provide your marketplace where you sell your goods with your producer number (EPR number). Complete your marketplace seller profile with your registration number, where the marketplace is requesting you to do so. They will define dedicated spaces.
10. Landbell AT – at our EASyShop you can also already buy the license for Austria. Shortly the marketplace is facing the same obligation as in Germany. After completion of the German registration, just switch on top of the Easy shop at the arrow to our packaging EASyShop AT.
