NVC MERGE Members-only Environmental Regulations Guide

For whom?
The NVC Members-only Environmental Regulations Guide (MERGE) is for companies that are obliged to fulfill their environmental obligations for packaging.

What is MERGE?
MERGE is a valuable web-based tool for assisting companies in finding their way in the multitude of regional and national environmental regulations, in and outside of Europe. Examples include information about the responsible party (importer or exporter) and the rules on using environmental logos like the Green Dot or the French Triman.

How to benefit from using MERGE
NVC MERGE is exclusively for NVC members, there are no costs involved. If you subscribe to MERGE, you will receive an alert with the updates every first Thursday of the month. This keeps you up to date on what is going on.
