The standard does not exclude neutral packaging from the obligation. However, for some of these packaging, important technological limitations have been identified that may not allow the physical affixing of environmental labeling to the packaging.
In this regard, in the clarification note sent by the Ministry of Ecological Transition on 17 May 2021, it is made clear that for neutral packaging, with particular reference to transport and / or possible semi-finished products, given the critical issues encountered by operators, both economically structurally in meeting the obligation, it is necessary to consider a possible alternative to the traditional labeling to be affixed to the packaging itself. Therefore, for these packaging, which are mostly part of the B2B channel, the identification of the packaging material can be conveyed and communicated by the manufacturer on the transport documents accompanying the goods, or on other external media, including digital ones.
