Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive
On 23 March 2010, the so-called Article 21 Committee appointed by the Commission met on this issue. The question whether Release Liners and RFID tags should be considered as Packaging or Non-Packaging was on the agenda. With the help of some leading experts from the industry, FINAT has therefore submitted a separate Position Paper explaining in more details our industry's arguments in support of the fact that Release Liners should NOT be considered as packaging.
The discussion on the classification of Release Liners and RFID tags is currently still in progress, with FINAT monitoring the developments and proactively providing input where needed.
