Hello, in Romania, pallets are considered to be tertiary packaging. This product can be reused over and over again. I think that it can be excepted from the application of the 94/62/CE directive. What do you think? Can you give court practice examples? How is the 94/62/\CE directive applyed in other E.U member countries?

Thanks for your question.

The EEA produces reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe. Please be aware that European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces policies.

The EU Commission has the responsibility of making new legislative proposals. These proposals are then adopted by the Council and the parliament, and implemented in the Member States by the national authorities. The Commission has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law. The role of the EEA is to supply all parties concerned with relevant environmental information.

DG Environment is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at:

Specific information on packaging and packaging waste is available at:

If the above mentioned websites do not provide you with sufficient information, you may also contact the DG Environment directly for further information. Relevant contact details can be viewed at:

Since the individual countries are responsible for implementing EU policies, you may find it useful to contact the responsible national authorities in the countries of your interest. For practical examples on how EU legislation is implemented into national law, I suggest that you contact the national authorities in the countries of your interest. Relevant contact links to European national authorities can be obtained at:

We hope this is helpful!

Best regards
