Putting a spanner in the works...

Cologne, 01.04.2015

...for the dual systems currently endeavouring to stabilise the market for returning sales packaging in Germany. After a turbulent few years, everyone is finally moving in the same direction. Many joint measures to strengthen the market have already been implemented, and others are being fine-tuned. System operators have learned from the mistakes of the last few months.

But now trouble is looming from elsewhere. The stabilisation measures of new system operators are currently being infiltrated by so-called high-volume brokers. These brokers do not operate their own dual system, but are only obligated to participate in one system for their clients’ packaging quantities - in theory at least. The situation is different in practice. It can be assumed that some brokers have negotiated none or far too few licences in dual systems - with potentially grave consequences for the entire commercial organisation of packaging return and disposal. The methods of the brokers are currently not sanctionable. As they are not party to clearing house contracts, they are also not subject to the control and inspection obligations contained therein. But we believe that: whoever orders music should pay for it too. Therefore in the future brokers should be subject to the same controls as system operators - with fair competitive conditions for all market players. Certainly by then it will be clear how competitive they really are.
