What are the relevant EPR registration authorities in Germany?

These are the relevant registration authorities in Germany for the different product categories:


The Packaging Register LUCID (Verpackungsregister LUCID) is the online platform of the Central Agency Packaging Register (Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister or ZSVR) for the implementation of the Packaging Act. Producers of products of the category packaging must register with the Packaging Register LUCID.

Proof of compliance:

  • EPR Registrierungsnummer (EPR registration number)

Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and Batteries

The authority „Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register“ (Stiftung EAR) is a joint body according to ElektroG and executing authority according to BattG. Producers of products of the category Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and/or Batteries must register with the Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register.

Proof of compliance:

  • EEE: WEEE-Reg.-Nr. DE (WEEE registration number Germany)
  • Battery: Batt-Reg.-Nr. DE (Battery registration number Germany)

Need to be noted:

In the case of packaging, the LUCID registration number is required first, with which you can then participate in the dual system with your quantities.

For electronic devices, one must first take care of the take-back and can then register (as a foreigner with a locally resident authorized representative).
