From April 1, 2015 new agreements have superseded the ones that producers had with FTI. Also new and simplified instructions took effect on April 1, 2015.

In summary, the major news in the new instructions is that FTI have changed the structure in order to make them clearer and easier to read and follow. In addition, service packaging and grower packaging are being merged and are now classified as Manufacturer’s Packaging. We now offer more customers the possibility, to report similar packaging products. At the same time new fees are valid. For planning, collection and packaging recycling, our fees are based on the costs generated per type of material. And most of the fees remain unchanged from previous levels. The fees for plastic and paper packaging have been raised for household and service packaging. All fees for metal packaging remain unchanged.
