The label is considered to be manually separable 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.
If the label can be manually separated from the main body, it must necessarily bear the alphanumeric code as per Decision 129/97 / EC and the information on 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.
