If the plastic support is a component that cannot be manually separated from the main body of the packaging, it must necessarily bear the identification code of the main body material, and the indications on collection (which follow the material of the main body).
Where possible, only the identification code of the material can be affixed as per Decision 129/97 / EC also on the components that cannot be separated manually, but, on these, the indication on the collection must not be reported.
If, on the other hand, the support can be manually separated from the main body, it must necessarily carry the alphanumeric code as per Decision 129/97 / EC and the indications on collection.
The environmental labels (at least the alphanumeric coding as per Decision 129/97 / EC) of the different manually separable components that make up the sales unit should be affixed to each component.
Where this is not possible, they may be affixed either to the main body of the packaging, or to another label or any other component that makes the information easily visible to the end consumer.
