FAQ's

Do the regulations apply to a foreign importer and does this company have to report? In other words, which company is the importer and obliged to report? Is it the company dispatching products from abroad or the domestic company receiving the goods?

From the standpoint of packaging producers are companies that pack or import packed products for the Finnish market and who have a turnover of EUR 1m or more.
Finnish companies are predominantly the companies with producer responsibility for packaging. According to the position taken by the Pirkanmaa ELY Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment, as of 1.5.2015 a producer is deemed to be a company that meets the following conditions:

  1. 1. The company has a Finnish business ID and at least one location on the mainland of Finland.
  2. 2. The company has a turnover of EUR 1m or more in Finland.
  3. 3. The company packs products in Finland or is an importer of packed products for the Finnish market.
    • A foreign company or its affiliate that is registered with the Finnish Trade Register is under producer responsibility obligations if all three conditions mentioned above are fulfilled.
    • Please note: A Finnish companies should also report packaging of products that it purchases from a foreign company, even if that foreign company does not fulfil all the conditions mentioned above.
