Authorised representative for packaging in Austria
Representative under the Austrian Packaging Ordinance for importers from third countries
The new Austrian Packaging Ordinance has been in force since January 1, 2023. One of the most important changes affects foreign companies that sell goods to Austria. These companies can now no longer register themselves independently and require an authorised representative in Austria to place packaging on the market in compliance with the law.
In addition, online marketplaces such as Amazon are required to check the registrations of all traders, threatening importers with exclusion from these platforms.
