ProdSG certification

What is ProdSG

ProdSG is a German product safety law. On September 23, 2011, the German Bundestag issued a revised version of the "Device and Product Safety Act" (GPSG), which is the current "Product Safety Act" (ProdSG). The German Bundestag passed the bill and announced it in the Federal Law Gazette on November 11, 2011, and its implementation began on December 1, 2011.

The Product Safety Law applies to almost all products, except for special fields such as medical equipment and food. This law implements many European CE directives into German law. In addition to the areas regulated by the unified directives, the "Product Safety Law" also provides for products outside the areas regulated by the unified directives, such as parts and accessories used by merchants for reprocessing.

All participants, including online retailers, are obliged to register under the new packaging law. The first to bring packaging products (including filling materials) to the German market and end with consumer waste, are all subject to VerpackV and VerpackG constraints. The extended product liability principle applies here. Therefore, these parties are responsible for ensuring the collection and recycling of all related packaging materials.

All companies selling goods in Germany must be prepared to participate in a dual system in order to arrange packaging recycling after the goods are used and continue trading in Germany.

How does this affect your company

If you do not register, the new requirements may create obstacles for your company's product sales. Before completing the registration of Zentrale Stelle, packaged goods cannot be marketed in Germany. Even if your company only places one item on the market each year, these requirements still apply.

Without registration, your company may suffer a huge fine of up to 200,000 Euros in Germany, and any missed declaration will be fined 10,000 Euros.

In addition, the bill will also encourage packaging manufacturers to incorporate recyclability considerations into packaging design. All companies must register on the packaging center registration website to ensure market access.
