How can a metal other than steel or aluminium be identified?

Whenever packaging consists of metal other than steel or aluminium, not associated with any specific code in Annex III to Decision 129/97/EC, we suggest adopting the number “42”, i.e. the first code in the table to which no material is associated, and therefore “available” for other types of metals not foreseen.

It should also be noted that in Annex VII relating to compounds, we refer to tin . In that case, all types of steel are included in the definition of tin .
