European packaging law guide updated
Industry lobby group Europen has revised its guide to EU and national legislation on packaging and the environment. The new report summarises the EU's 1994 packaging directive and national legislation in 31 European countries, up from 23 in the previous 1999 edition. It also describes the directive's essential requirements and the CEN standards developed to implement them, plus lists the main national packaging waste recovery schemes in each country.
