For a composite packaging, consisting mainly of plastic (in particular, of PP in prevalent form, and of PET) + paper, what is the correct identification code according to Decision 129/97 / EC to be adopted?

A pack made in this way is a packaging consisting mainly of plastic with paper. For the identification of the material, the prevailing C / polymer + number associated with the plastic and paper coupling must be provided, i.e. 81 (as per decision 129/97 / EC).

Therefore the coding is C / PP 81.
