No. The corks of wine and sparkling wine bottles are both considered to be manually separable since they must necessarily be separated by the user to consume the product and are then intended to be collected separately.
Since the corks of the wine and sparkling wine bottles can be separated from the main body, they must necessarily carry the alphanumeric code as per Decision 129/97 / EC and the indications on collection, if intended for the B2C channel.
The environmental labels (at least the alphanumeric coding as per Decision 129/97/EC) of the various manually separable components that make up the sales unit should be affixed to each component, cork included.
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.
