Introduction

This report provides an overview of legislation of Slovenia that imposes obligations with respect to packaging of electrical and electronic equipment and other products.

In 1994, the EU adopted the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EEC (the "Directive"), which partly harmonizes Member States' national packaging legislation. The Directive imposes design, take-back and information requirements on packaging.

Slovenia transposed the Directive through the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation 84/2006 of 27 July 2006 (Pravilnik o ravnanju z embalažo in odpadno embalažo) as last amended by Regulation 18/2014 of March 14, 2014, Regulation 68/2011 of August 31, 2011, Regulation 67/2011 of August 26, 2011, Regulation 110/07 of 22 November 2007 and Regulation 106/06 of 5 October 2006 (the "Packaging Act"). This transposition appears to be consistent with the Directive.

This report provides an overview of the national provisions that differ from or complement the Directive, including where the Directive leaves discretion to the Member States. For a detailed discussion of the Directive, including the definition of packaging, see the subject report on Packaging and Labeling in European Union.

Note that additional chemical restrictions may also be imposed on packaging by the REACH and the POP Regulations. For substance-specific information, please refer to the EU Restricted Substance Database. Please also refer to the subject report on Restricted Substances Overview in European Union.
