If the paper used to wrap the box can be separated manually, or if it is designed to be separated by the user, without risk to his health and safety, from the main body with only the use of his hands and without having to resort to additional tools and utensils , must necessarily report the alphanumeric code as per Decision 129/97 / EC and the information on the collection (if the pack is intended for the final consumer).
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.
If the packaging is made up of one packaging material (steel, aluminium, paper, wood, plastic, glass), laminated or processed with a material other than the packaging material (e.g. glue, adhesive, ink), it can still be considered single-material packaging. In this case, the printed paper is coded PAP 22 and must be collected in the separate paper collection.
The cardboard box, on the other hand, has PAP 21 coding and must also be given in the paper collection.
