Legal basis

In August 2001, Law 2939/01 on “Packaging and the Alternative Management of Packaging and Other Products” was passed. The said law lays down the obligation for the alternative management of packaging in our country and harmonizes our national legislation with the related European Union legislation and in particular with European Directive 94/62/EC. At this point, we should note that in 2004 a new Community Directive was issued amending the goals set by Directive 94/62/EC. The new goals were incorporated into the national legal framework by means of a Joint Ministerial Decision 9268/469.
